My favorite tools

Hello! i’m sorry for my extended absence. I hope this article is compensation enough. This article will cover some of my favorite tools that i use on a day to day basis in my projects. Of-course this is just my preference. this will not include any pre-processors, libraries etc 

Atom

My favorite editor and the one i always end up coming back to is Atom, i love the customiziblility of it and the well thought out user interface. The editor has it’s own built in package manager that you can access via the editor itself or via the command line by typing ‘amp’. amp stands for Atom Package Manager, as you might have expected

Adobe Kuler

This is by far the best tool for picking colour, it comes packed with features. It may be a little bit intimidating if you haven’t read anything about how colour theory but i promise it isn’t as intimidating as it looks. This web app lets you create colour pallets that you can synchronize with your adobe account! Which lets you access them inside Photoshop or illustrator. even though i use neither of those programs it is a really neat feature. 2015-06-28_21-16-05

Git

If you don’t know what git is then get out! no i’m just kidding :). If you don’t know what git is, it is a Distributed revision control system. I use it daily and it has really been a life saver. i strongly reccomend you set of some time to learn it. you won’t regret it git-logo

Trello

i found this a couple of months ago and it is has been such an amazing tool. it lets you organize all of your ideas easily, on all of your devices. you can create something called a ‘board’ that contain ‘columns’ which in contains card like notes which you can move from column to column. for example you could have a board named ‘Things i need to do’. And then have columns named. Todo, doing and done. And when you’re done with one task you can move it from doing to done. in addition to that you can add things like labels and due dates to these cards
