When I was trying to build my home office, the uses.tech website helped me a lot to choose my equipment so I share my own too.
I have tried plenty of different choices. Windows with WSL2, Debian-based Linux systems and even Arch-based systems with i3wm. Despite the fact I was a lot faster using Linux, I was surprised at how stable MacOS is, so here we are.
Last year, I started working remotely, so I was looking for a simple inexpensive desk. I went to IKEA, I tried it, I bought it and I am happy with it.
The same story with the desk. A simple VFM chair for professionals. I went to IKEA, I tried it, I bought it and I am happy with it.
For the most of the coding projects I am working on, I am using VS Code with Vim bindings. It has a huge community and is as simple and as complex as I need.
For configuration files and simple coding projects, I am using Vim. Although I am using VS Code with the Vim bindings, I do not feel ready to switch all my repositories to Vim yet. If you are interested in my dotfiles, you can find them here.
All of my repositories are hosted on GitHub. The reason I chose it is that it has the biggest community compared with the other platforms.
I do not design a lot but when I do, I use Figma. It is free, simple and online.
