One thought on “My computer setup

  1. doesn’t it feel good to just let it flow like lightning with all these tools? lol

    i use a similar stack of stuff except python and atom editor, have questions:

    how do you manage the following, and are sharing those?

    for your projects
    -folder/file structure
    -naming conventions
    -folder structure
    -notes, what file format do you take notes int, and do you have any note taking syntax you grep tricks for notes, or are you doing that with a web app or some app?

    are you into serialized data or db’s?

    are you using version control?

    are you using static tools like lint, beautify, minify? I just started using those and they help me bigtime

    what are you building?!?

    I need to learn to use grunt, more package managers and other build tools because i suspect my current methods in the end will seem a mess that i’ll pay for later…
