Tools I use for web development

Why this post?

As a web developer, I use a lot of tools (new & old), utilities & some tips from my discovery and from lots of people around (twitter, product hunt etc,). Today I want to share all of apps & tools I use for web development.

I will try to update this post regularly. Most of them are OSX apps.

💻 Terminal

  • oh-my-zsh is my default terminal.
  • z is autocompletion shortcut for folders.
  • Consolas - Terminal font.
  • Dracula theme (slighty customized).
  • Lots of custom & borrowed aliases (super lazy me 😆).

⌨️ Code Editor Settings

🔧 Code Editor Plugins

  • Gist - List of all extenstions and plugins

Use the below command in your terminal show extension you use in vscode and share it easily.


👨‍💻 Desktop Apps (OSX )

🎉 Browsers

  • Chrome (my default browser), Chrome Canary.
  • Opera.
  • Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Firefox Nighly,
  • Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Edge Canaryy.
  • Safari, Safari Technology Preview & Nightly (SW is supported 😬).

🔩 Browser Extensions


  • React Developer Tools - A React debugging tools to the Chrome Developer Tools.
  • Like on GitHub - Chrome extension to save links that you like on GitHub repository that you specify.
