POURIA .

Thoughts that keep me awake at night.

Uses

Apps, tools and gadgets that I use.

code

I’m not famous, and nobody has ever asked me what I use, however, I felt the urge to let everyone know about it.

So let’s start.

Editor.

Extensions:

  • DotENV: Syntax highlighting for .env files.
  • ESLint: To lint JavaScript/TypeScript.
  • Multiple cursor case preserve: Preserve case when I use CMD/CTRL+D to find and replace texts. Very handy.
  • Prettier: Format and beautify JavaScript/TypeScript code.
  • rust-analyzer: Provides support for Rust.
  • vscode-shader: Provides support for shader language.
  • Thunder Client: A minimal and simple REST API client that I prefer to apps like postman for most cases.
  • TODO Highlight: Highlight TODO’s in the code.
  • Toggle Quotes: Toggle between single-quotes, double-quotes and backticks. A real time saver.

Other configurations:

I’ve disabled the status bar, the activity bar, the minimap, breadcrumbs and basically any other visual noise if I ever notice them on the editor screen. Here are some notable configurations:

{
  "editor.fontSize": 16,
  "editor.lineHeight": 27,
  "files.defaultLanguage": "markdown",
  "editor.cursorWidth": 3,
  "editor.cursorBlinking": "phase",
  "editor.cursorSmoothCaretAnimation": true,
  "editor.minimap.enabled": false,
  "breadcrumbs.enabled": false,
  "workbench.activityBar.visible": false,
  "workbench.statusBar.visible": false,
}

Applications.

  • 💰 1Password, manage passwords.
  • 💰 💘 Alfred, launcher, clipboard manager, scripts and more. I’ve created dozens of my own custom workflows to automate things.

  • Amphetamine, keeping the display on for when needed.
  • AppCleaner, uninstall apps and all of their data.
  • Blender, 3D design software. I’ve just started.

My favorite hobby is spending days to create Spotify playlists and never listen to them again.My eyesight got worse while building this website.I care so much about my website being responsive. [my nose just growed longer by 1 inch]I got a total of 0 matches on Tinder.I could have published this website at least 2 weeks earlier if I hadn't used TypeScript.This website is not tested, proceed with caution !!1!Try ↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → B A.
