  • helix

    A post-modern modal text editor.

    Helix has served me really well. In fact, I like it much more than neovim/vim/emacs.

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • vscodium

    binary releases of VS Code without MS branding/telemetry/licensing

    vscodium is open source, free/libre. MS VSCode is just MS telemetry on top of it. So you can either go with vscodium or use vscode and disable all telemetry.

  • Visual Studio Code
