My Coding Setup for 2022
It's that time again. My annual coding setup for 2022 is here. In previous years I've outlined a similar set of tools, software, and extensions since I get asked about this a lot. I hope the list highlights some new tools you have never tried or found interesting!
The list is below. Let me know if I should be using something that you can't live without in the comments!
I linked to previous years' setups at the bottom of this post. Check those out too!
- Apple Mac Mini M1
- LG UltraFine 5k IPS LED Monitor 27”
- Logitech ERGO K860 Wireless Split Keyboard
- Logitech Lift Vertical Ergonomic Mouse
- VS Code
- Video Editing: Davinci Resolve
- Design: Figma
- Design: Nucleo
Icons I use
Frameworks and languages
My current VS Code Extensions list
My list is pretty minimal, but some extensions I swear by. Most of these are excellent, and I lean towards the "less is more" philosophy when extending a code editor.
- Bracket Jumper
- ERB syntax highlighting
- ERB Formatter/Beautify
- File Utils
- Formatting Toggle
- Git Graph
- Intellisense for CSS class names in HTML
- Live Server
- Monkey Patch
- SCSS Formatter
- Settings Sync
- Sort Lines
- Subtle Match Brackets
- Tailwind CSS IntelliSense
- VS Code Ruby
- Vue VSCode Snippets
VS Code Themes
Asset Hosting and Backups
- Static sites / Other
- Netlify - Used for landing pages mostly. Great for automatic deploy via among the other features available.
- Hugo - Great for a static site. I use it at https://justalever.com (my personal site)
- Middleman - Great for a basic blog/website setup if you prefer ruby
- Vite - I’ll commonly use this for basic stuff even though it’s capable of so much more.
