Using

Most of the things that I use are free. Other tools I have written myself to help save time repeating the same lengthy process. I will try to keep this page current as much as possible.

Editor + Font

  • I currently use VSCode since moving away from Atom in Feburary 2018.
  • I use VSCode theme Shades of Purple by Ahmad Awais.
  • The font I am currently using with VSCode is Droid Sans.

Software

  • Slack. Possibly one of the most vital communication tools besides Twitter or Email.
  • I use Slack theme Shades of Purple by Ahmad Awais

System

I currently use OMEN HP Laptop 15-ce0xxIPS LED and the specs are:

  • Full HD 120Hz Screen
  • Intel Core i5-7300 CPU @ 2.50 GHz x64 processor
  • 128GB SSD
  • 1TB HD
  • 8 GB DDR4 Ram
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB VRAM with Max-Q Design
  • Razer Orochi Black Wireless Bluetooth Gaming Mouse
  • Windows 10 Home

Services

  • GitHub is where I store my code. I have a lot of private repositories so if you think the number for my public repositories is high your sadly mistaken.
  • Google Drive for storing backups of my important files or resources I require across both my systems.
  • WordWeb to check spelling and look up meanings of words. Most important to have since I am dyslexic.

Scripts

  • GitHub to WordPress.org is a simple deploy script that I designed to push any branch from a GitHub repository to your WordPress.org plugin SVN for new releases.
  • Just Do It is a Grunt package that I designed to provide the basic requirements to help run tasks automatically to save time running tests, version checking and building a deployable plugin for WordPress.

WordPress Plugins

There are many great plugins that I use but I will only list ones that are important right now.

  • CoBlocks is a selection of blocks for Gutenberg editor developed by Rich Tabor which this site is using.
  • Gutenberg Prototype is a plugin updater I developed to keep Gutenberg up to date with the latest release candidates so I can test the new changes and maintain the Gutenberg blocks I develop.

WordPress Theme

I am currently using the CoBlocks theme for this site and a few others. This site is currently using a child-theme with some modifications I have made to make the design a little of my own. It’s still a working progress.

P.S. You should view the site in dark mode. That’s when the fun stuff is shown.
