Uses

A somewhat comprehensive list of tools, apps, hardware, and more that I use on a daily basis to design and code things. And yeah, that is a Baymax Edit in the background.

Development

  • I use Visual Studio Code as my text editor, with the Mnokai Pro theme and Material Icon as my Icon Theme of choice.
  • Opera GX is my main browser for both development and general use.
  • React is my front-end Javascript library of choice with Next js as the framework of choice. The component-centric mental model is the first thing that truly makes sense to me as a developer.
  • Express is my framework of choice for REST Apis. and I am learning GraphQL.
  • MongoDB is my database of choice for rapid Web Development and I use Prima and Mongoose as ORM/ODM.
  • For 3D effects and image shaders, I am learning three.js. It has a bit of a learning curve but you can do some really powerful stuff with it.
  • For CSS I love Tailwind over everything else.
  • For Javascript animations I am learning Framer Motion, it’s a great way to add spring animations to React and three.js.

Design

  • Figma is my primary tool for UI design these days.
  • Any Vectors and Images I craft are created in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
