Seems that a lot of developers are creating these /uses pages after discovering Wes Bos’s /uses page.

My favorite of these happens to be from Jon Suh. His /uses page includes a photo, which is what I did here.

I'm finally doing big girl work at a company so I was able to upgrade everything, and will soon upgrade the iMac.


Let’s start with my gear which you can find on KIT.[1]


  • VS Code
  • Nova Editor for macOS
    • Yes, I paid $$$ for a text editor. It's feature rich and native to macOS, which I usually don't care about. However, you can't deny the speed increase and easing of stress on your CPU and RAM. Plus, it's beautiful.
  • Oh My Zsh
    • I will never use a terminal without this installed.
  • Boom 3D
    • This makes everything sound amazing.
  • Chrome
  • Alfred
    • Workflows make this my favorite app.I can’t live without it. You can find my workflows here. I have way too many, I admit.
  • Text Expander
  • Todoist for tasks.[2]
  • Notion for Project management.[3]
  • Drafts
  • Fantastical for scheduling. I pay for the premium version.
  • Sip for Mac for a color picker
  • ScreenFlow
    • As I get into making egghead lessons and more screencasts for tiffany.blog, I need a heavy duty piece of software to do so. Screenflow fits the bill.
  • StreamLabs OBS Software for Mac
    • Best OBS client on the Mac.
  • CloudApp
    • This is how I share bugs and other things with devs and dev teams. Also an easy way to make a gif of a feature or bug on my Mac.
  • Setapp
    • It finally has enough utilities to make it worth the subscription price for me.

Home Server

Yeah I am running a home server of sorts, as my fascination with Home Assistant, InfoSec, and networking/network security continues to grow.

Below is a list of the hardware I use for the rack. Click the details button to see the softare I am running on the network for server and IoT purposes.

Racks on Racks...

New rack

I Use a lot of software, I admit

But I use ALL OF IT.

So this is my setup and what I am currently using. You can show me your dev setup on Twitter.


  1. I never seem to be satisfied with my place, no matter how many times I rearrange, add, and subtract things... ↩︎

  2. This is the only task manager that I actually look at and use. It is that beautiful, simple, and it has impressed me far more than any task manager in recent memory. ↩︎

  3. This is such a deep app and I am in love with it. After avoiding it because I was a heavy user of Evernote and quite liked it, there were things that annoyed me about it. Everyone talked about this app, Notion and I signed up. Been using it for two weeks and I have paid the subscription. It's that good. Still setting it up but here's my dashboard. ↩︎

  4. Though not from my NAS.... ↩︎

  5. No logs kept either. It's kinda slow though. Some things don't work on my network when it is enabled. I think a lot of it has to do with Fios being shit for a lot of folks, including myself, lately. ↩︎

  6. When grabbing the link for WireGuard I found this repo which is just 🤌🏽 trailofbits/algo Set up a personal VPN in the cloud ↩︎
