    Zsh is actually the default shell in MacOS now, for what its worth. Iterm2 has features regarding session management via profiles, tabs for multiple sessions, etc. The default terminal in MacOS is just fine, but if you find yourself using the terminal every day, iTerm2 is definitely a step up. There are other Terminals though such as Hyper: which has the hilarious and amazing HyperPower plugin:

  • GitHub repo notable

    The Markdown-based note-taking app that doesn't suck.

    Project mention: Typora 1.0 needs a license code to use | | 2021-11-27

    Never meta a WYSIWYG markdown editor I liked since all efforts of making it WYSIWYG impacts text editing.

    For all markdown docs now I've moved to just using VS Code with a live reload UI, the best DevUX I've found is VitePress [1] which immediately updates on save and shows the real thing, i.e. exactly how the docs will look including rendering any custom markdown-it extensions or Vue Components embedded in the page.

    One free Markdown editor I've started using is Notable [2] which has become a worthy replacement to Notepad for manually managing TODO notes & sporadic text files in a neat simple UI with built-in search, pin working docs and custom labels for quick organization and retrieval. It works exactly how I wanted it to as a minimal UI for editing static .md files in a directory with all metadata stored in frontmatter that displays preview mode by default and an unobtrusive text mode when editing it.

    Project mention: Any good media player to watch movies (.mkv, .mp4)? | | 2021-11-30

    Network -- Either PLEX or KODI are really good media server apps. The app runs on a computer 24/7, and then you "send" the video feed to the TV of your choice either via Smart Stick or a tiny media computer connected to the TV via HDMI. Think of them as your own personal Netflix.
