I was introduced to the world of open source in college and I’ve never looked back. Here’s a list of some tools I can’t live without:

  • antigen-hs: as git-submodules are a nightmare.
  • pushbullet: universal copy paste across devices, need I say more?
  • fzf: generic commandline fuzzyfinder.
  • tmux: terminal multiplexer.
  • vcsh and mr: dotfiles nirvana.
  • vim: cause every other editor feels half baked.
  • zsh: Instantly Awesome ZSH using Prezto.

Media organization

I’m an obsessive compulsive, and I’ve dedicated my life to sorting my shit media.

  • anki: powerful, intelligent flashcards.
  • beets: the music geek’s media organizer.
  • boom: bookmarks on the command line.
  • geeknote: cross-platform command line Evernote client.
  • git: as Torvalds says source control as the way it should be.
  • git-annex: for everything else.
  • google photos: Google scored a homerun with this one.
  • annotate the web
  • ledger: powerful, double-entry accounting system.
  • memo: commandline note-taking.
  • snips: commandline snippets.


An assorted list of other utilities that come in handy.
