A detailed and exhaustive list of skills I have and tools I use
- Tried Bash scripting long back, have to get back at it.
- Proficient with React js a UI Framework, and Preact js a lightweight 3kb alternative to React js providing similar api. Keeping an eye on new phase of UI frameworks Solid JS and Svelte JS.
- Currently my goto way of writing CSS is by using Tailwind CSS a utility-first CSS framework.
- My rendering frameworks of choice are Astro js and Next js. I switch between them most often, depends upon the project I am taking up and also sometimes the mood I am in.
- Loved using Radix UI an unstyled a11y friendly React component library. When in necessary for a styled solution I prefer using Shadcn UI, re-usable components built using Radix UI and Tailwind CSS.
- Used to love using Gulp task runner but after getting used to Vite, it has become my default tool of choice everytime I start a new project.
- I have tried CMS like wordpress once, Not into it but familiar with using it.
- Loving the idea of Headless CMS, been using sanity recently.
- Currently Learning Stripe a payments infrastructure.
- My primary code editor is VS Code
- Goto Prototyping tool as of now is Figma
- I use PNPM as my default node package manager, for those who don’t know it is disk efficient alternative to NPM.
- Some CLI tools i often install on my machines are NVM for managing my nodejs installs on the system, homebrew for managing softwares on my mac and linux systems.
- My version control system of choice is obviously Git. Haven’t mastered the skill of maintaining a good commit history, but going to get there.
- I have experience in working on all three major Operating systems Windows, Mac, and Linux. But i feel more efficient on Mac and Linux, Windows slows me down for some reason. If you are reading this please consider using linux its free, less resource intensive, no bloatware, developer friendly.
- My linux distro hops if you’re interested : ubuntu (gnome DE) —> linux mint (cinammon DE) —> garuda linux (KDE Dr460nized DE) —> Fedora workstation (gnome DE)
