Software I Like
Pinboard is a bookmarking tool. It has many things I enjoy in a web application.
It's information-dense, everything is displayed on the same screen; extremely fast, no animations or long loading times; and easily extendable, you can easily build and extend its functionality using their API.
I use it to save all kinds of websites: Wikipedia articles, travel guides, technical articles, design resources, tweets, etc.
The best way to enforce style in a codebase is leaving it up for a machine to do it.
I like prettier not because it makes my code look nice, but because it makes everyone's code look the same.
Letterboxd is a film-journal app, at least that's how I use it.
I like it because it doesn't try to recommend me movies. Instead, I can see what my friends have watched and browse curated lists created by real human beings.
Letterboxd reminds me of the good old days of social networks.
Horo is a menu bar timer app for macOS.
Out of the many productivity shenanigans, one that works for me is timeblocking. I set up a 5 to 30 minutes timer and try to get a task done before it runs out. It's a simple system.
Horo lives in the menu bar, my favorite piece of real estate on the screen. Watching the time going down is thrilling. I feel like I am defusing a bomb.
Horo's best feature is its simplicity. Their website says: "If starting a timer takes more than a second, your timer app sucks".
I also use Horo when steeping my tea.
