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.
