Editor + Terminal#

I use the gnome-terminal that ships with Linux Mint’s Cinnamon Edition with bash and a custom prompt from starship. The editor I use depends on what code I am working with:

  • Web, Python: VS Code
  • Rust: VS Code or CLion
  • Android: Android Studio
  • Kotlin (outside Android): IntelliJ IDEA

I also tend to use nano for quick edits on the terminal. Fight me.

CLI tooling#

My love for Rust extends deep into the CLI, and a lot of GNU tools are replaced with their Rust reimplementations for better performance and useful features. Notably, the replacements are:

GNU versionRust versionLink

I have begun using Homebrew to maintain software on my machines so you can see most stuff I have on my PC in this Brewfile. I now officially despise Homebrew, and use Nix instead. Yes, I’m fickle, how’d you guess?
