Software I use

Operating System:

  • I use Linux and Unix On my workstations I use Arch Linux oh yeah “I use Arch by the way!” This has somehow become the elitist mantra meme of Arch users. But I don’t care what Linux you use, or even unix, the mach kernel on unix is stretching things and Microgarbage, what are you my grandmother!


  • I used to use Termite and still do as a backup if anything happens to:
  • I’ve switches to alacritty due to it’s speed equality across distros and resolutions, ligature support and “having a config file”


  • ZSH

Window Manager / Desktop Environment

  • i3wm

Text editing and development

Web Browser

Writing Documents

  • I use org-mode a major mode for Emacs in which I use Spacemacs Configuration. org-mode allows for robust outlining and other controls over plane text. Far surpassing markdown and other markup languages. With the use of Pandoc I export to Markdown, HTML, PDF via Latex and more.
  • Expanding to use Hugo and the Emacs / org-mode minor mode ox-hugo to export org-mode files for the site
  • Simple Deploy Script (redacted)
      #!/usr/bin/env sh
      # I like using absolute paths when I can
      cd ~/Sites/
      USER={username here}
      HOST={hostname here}
      DIR={relative path to home on the server}
      /usr/bin/hugo && /usr/bin/rsync -avz --delete public/ ${USER}@${HOST}:~/${DIR}
      # if you don't know this returns you to the directory you were in when you
      # called this script
