  • Karabiner Elements for keyboard shortcuts. I use it to remap the capslock to delete or backspace.
  • Rectangle for window management.
  • Alfred App spotlight search on steroids. Search everything and create custom workflows.
  • CleanShotX for quick screenshots with clean annotations.
  • Homerow for using your mouse less and your keyboard more.


  • Typora for writing in markdown.


  • PrePros for compiling SASS to CSS. A little easier than setting up NPM-SASS for every little project.
