Tools I use ever since

Soc Virnyl Estela | 2024-01-30 | reading time: ~1min


I am very familiar with any editor now from Emacs, to VSCode, from IntelliJ to Vim. But my notable favorite editors are Helix and Kakoune. Visual feedback is more convenient for me that is why I prefer the reverse mode of Helix and Kakoune over Vim or Neovim.

Web Browser§

I still use Firefox. I have been a Firefox user for 3 years now ever since COVID-19 happened


The funny thing about calendars is I always look at my phone. I guess it is either the cal command or Thunderbird's Calendar.


I have tried many note-taking apps. I believe that Org mode from Emacs has potential, especially my favorite Org Roam + UI plugin, but the fact that it is only for Emacs is a deal breaker for me. I plan to write something similar that is editor-agnostic and platform-agnostic. But for now, I am using on just plain text markdown. Obsidian looks enticing though.

NOTE: This is based on, but completely rewritten, from a Twitter post: https://x.com/TheGingerBill/status/1802645945642799423 TL;DR It makes Go feel too “functional” rather than being an unabashed imperative language. I recently saw a post on Twitter showi…
