Toolbelt

What Operating System?

I installed Debian somewhere around 12 years ago. Since then, I have tried countless of other Debian based Linux distributions, but my main distribution has always been Debian. I've experiencing with Void, so far, a really nice distribution. My freelance work is done under Ubuntu.


What editor?

My first Linux distribution was Mandriva, installed in 2006. And if I correctly remember, Emacs was already present after the installation. Since then, I never really tried to use another editor. Have you heard about Magit? Have you heard about the Emacs restclient? Have you heard about System crafters


What version control?

Version control is a system that records changes to a file or set of files over time so that you can recall specific versions later and blablabla ... I'm using Git mainly, but I know my ways around Mercurial.


What terminal multiplexer?

Is it really possible to grow as a Linux user without using a terminal multiplexer? Please do yourself a favor, and go read about it.


What shell?

Just Bash. I keep a lot of small shell utilities to ease the life on a computer.


Tools I don't want to work with?

I'll be very glad and very happy if I don't have to deal with Microsoft Windows and affiliates, PHP and affiliates, Javascript and affiliates, Google and affiliates. Anything that is not free software. Anything that does not respect freedom and data privacy.


Reading news?

Besides spending lots of time browsing Mastodon, here is a list of some of the places where I find interesting informations:


* When I wake up, I always check those 2 websites, with my phone browser:
* Weekly news:
* Some YT channels I watch before sleeping, not exhaustive list:



Above, you've just discovered what is a mostly comprehensive list of the tools that I use regularly for my work.
