Strong opinions, weakly held

How I roll

Inspired by this post where Flickr’s developers talk about their toolset, here are the tools I use to get the job done:

  • 20″ iMac with second 20″ monitor (in the office)
  • 24″ iMac (home)
  • black MacBook (don’t leave home without it)
  • Terminal.app
  • Quicksilver
  • TextMate (for Rails and PHP development)
  • Eclipse (for Java development)
  • vim (for everything else)
  • Subversion
  • MySQL
  • Perl (I still rely on it for one offs)
  • Adium
  • Gmail (all my mail goes through my Gmail account)
  • MarsEdit
  • Google Reader
  • NetNewsWire

Update: I inadvertently removed Firefox (and Firebug) from the list when I was working on this post. I honestly don’t know how people do JavaScript without Firebug.


  1. Good lord, what about Firefox?!

  2. I had Firefox and Firebug on the list and must have left it out when I was reordering things. Firefox is definitely essential.
