Inspired by The Setup I will tell you about me and how i get things done.
Who are you, and what do you do?
I’m a web developer at Reload!, I would say 99% of my work is with Drupal. At the company we’re doing websites for customers, and we have made TiNG which is “Drupal for Libraries”, which is based on Drupal 6. And I have been a part of porting that to Drupal 7. I have contributed to the Drupal community by making a handful of contrib modules, and a lot of patches, mainly for a various list of contrib modules, but also a few core patches, for both Drupal 6 and 7.
What hardware are you using?
My only computer is a Macbook Air the 1.8 GHz Intel Core i7 with 4 GB ram and 256 GB SSD.
The pointer on that bigass display is moved around with a Magic Mouse and sometimes just because i can, I switch to the Magic Trackpad. I’m not fully convinced that the Macgic Trackpad can do my job better than the Magic Mouse, but trying.
When attached to the 27” Apple thunderbolt Display I do all the writing on the Apple Wired Keyboard without the numeric pad, i really don’t understand why those two keyboards have different layouts, on the tiny one, the ‘fn’ key i located lower left corner, and on the big one with the numeric pad, it’s placed left of the numeric. Kinda lame.
When listening to music and i cannot blast it out through my sound system at home, i use a pair of kinda outdated Denon AH-D1001 Headphones, they are about 4 years old, but do the job well.
And what software?
I simply cannot live without music, and after Spotify got available in Denmark, i sold a big box of cd’s which is available online, can’t really see why to keep the cd’s.
Google Chrome is my primary browser. When writing about my browser, i have Firefox installed despite it’s almost never used, but almost the first piece of software to upgrade when a new version is available. Everything i can get Google to handle for me, it does, that list is long: Mail, Docs, Calendar, Drive and Reader.
My calendar is mainly used from Chrome, but for quick adding a new event im using Fantastical.
The list of apps used almost every day is containing AlfredApp, MacVim, iTerm2, Sequel Pro, Caffeine preventing your mac from sleeping. Every screenshot made with CMD+SHIFT+4 is handled with CloudApp.
Window handling, resizing and moving around between spaces is handled with SizeUp.
For linux VM’s im very happy about Vagrant, so easy to spawn a new VM, currently i have a little handful of VM’s, all of them is ubuntus (development, a Solr server, Jenkins CI and a few other tesing VM’s).
Package management is handled by Homebrew with a few taps homebrew-alt, homebrew-dupes and homebrew-php. The list of installed packages is ack, apc-php, cloc, colordiff, csstidy, ctags, curl, fasd, git, git-flow, mariadb, mutt, nginx, node, php5.3.13, tmux, tree, vimpager, xdebug-php, xhprof-php, zsh. The terminal (iTerm2) in which i almost live, i have customized with zsh and Oh-my-zsh. My Vim setup is customized a lot, and have both configs stored in my dotfiles at Github
1Password is where every single password for everything is stored.
