My developer setup for 2020

We’re already on april (damn, where the last 3 months went?), and it may be late to show my personal setup for this year. So, here is my personal setup for developing and designing this year.

Hardware

At home, I’m using my personal 2017 MacBook Pro, 13-inch, 2,3 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5 with 8GB of RAM. No extra screens, no extra mouses nor keyboards.

At work, I’m using a Dell Latitude 3400, 13-inch, Intel Core i5 with 16GB of RAM (with Windows). Also, no extra screens, no extra mouses nor keyboards.

Text Editor

I’ve been using Sublime Text 3 as my text editor for a while. It’s clean, pretty and fast. And it also has lots of nice extensions. I’m currently using:

  • Alignment
  • Babel
  • Carbon
  • Color Highlight
  • Elixir
  • Emmet
  • JavaScript Patterns
  • JavaScriptNext - ES6 Syntax
  • JSONLint
  • JsPrettier
  • Nunjucks Syntax
  • Package Control
  • PyV8
  • Ruby Slim
  • Sass
  • Seti_UI
  • Seti_UX
  • Simple JSX
  • Trimmer
  • TypeScript
  • TypeScript Syntax
  • Vue Syntax Highlight

There’s a lot of plugins here, and I know I need to remove some of them. I’ll keep it in my backlog.

I’m considering to try a new text editor. In the last years I’ve used WebStorm for a while and also VSCode. For some reason I don’t know yet, I’m not so into VSCode, and I’m willing to try Atom this year.

Terminal

At home I use iTerm2 as my default terminal, with Oh My Zsh and robbyrussell theme.

At work, I’m using Git Bash as my terminal - since it supports UNIX-like commands.

Browser

I use Google Chrome for development since forever; my last one was Firefox with Firebug extension (old, I know). My current version is 80. To test stuff I also use Firefox (72) and Safari (13).

On mobile, I use Safari since it’s the default browser, but also tried to use Cake Browser.

Design

This year I’ve been using Adobe XD a lot, more than Sketch; I’m getting the way with XD.

Stack

I’ve started the year using React at my full-time job at Bcredi. This month (april) I moved on to a new challenge at Paraná Banco, and there they also use React with Next; this year is my “React year” so far.

On my personal jobs I’m betting on vanilla stuff, to avoid keeping only with React or Vue as the last years.

I’m doing a lot of freelances using WordPress too, since it’s easy and fast to build; and it’s easy to non-tech people to use and update stuff.


On my uses page, there is a complete list of what I’m using to develop, design, create and share. You might take a look!
