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:

  • alacritty: a better terminal
  • ag: fast code search tool.
  • cli-goodes: misc tools for daily use.
  • fasd: use substrings and frecency to cd into folders.
  • firefox: privacy first browsing..
  • foliate: clean ebook reader.
  • fzf: fuzzy completion everywhere.
  • pass: password manager.
  • podman: use this over docker.
  • snips: better snippet management by moi.
  • tmux: terminal multiplexer.
  • vcsh and mr: dotfiles nirvana.
  • vim: no editor compares.
  • zsh: instantly awesome ZSH using Prezto.
  • zathura: PDF Viewer.

Media organization

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

  • anki: powerful, intelligent flashcards.
  • inoreader: it’s in vogue for now.
  • dropbox: it works, might reconsider.
  • git: as Torvalds says source control as the way it should be.
  • goodreads: pathetic, but it’s all we’ve got.
  • google photos: Google scored a homerun with this one.
  • google keep: it’s simple and works everywhere for tasks.
  • tasker: automate your phone.


There are trade-offs in privacy and I’m trying to be cognizant of each trade-off I make.

  • andOTP: Open source OTP solution.
  • bromite: secure browsing for mobile.
  • firefox: fast, privacy first browsing.
  • migadu: email server, love them for their simplicity.
  • mullad: fast VPN based on WireGuard.
  • pihole: local DNS, saves battery, memory and much more.
