About tooling


For the last twenty or so years I’ve been a Mac person, prior to that die hard PC fan, but I fell in love with unix flavoured operating systems.

At the moment I use a 13in M1 Macbook Pro for work and a 15in M2 Macbook Air personally. I also keep a Dell laptop around when I want to play with linux distros - usually some flavour of debian, but also really like the potential of VanillaOS.

Macintosh desktop with a terminal window containing the neovim editor

I live in the terminal these days, my editor of choice is vim, more specifically neovim.

For me, after getting over the learning curve (which admittedly was years ) the modal style of editing finally clicked and now I find it the most efficient way to work with text.

Of course sometimes when I’m working on a team it’s easier just to use VS Code, with the vim extension naturally.

Frameworks… languages

This site uses Astro as the framework of choice. I love the speed and the astro templating language.
