Chromium - The opensource project that has given us awesome web browsers.
Vim - I am not good at it but it helps when you are in a remote machine.
Linux - Of course, it runs my PC, phone, and many I am not aware of.
nodeJS - JavaScript as a universal platform. It's like a JVM but for JavaScript.
VSCode - Where I do my day to day coding.

easy question, it is node.js

node.js is the besy.
node.js the absolute game changer!
node.js and all its ecosystem around javascript.
npm, typescript, electron, frameworks, modules, libraries.
express, postgres, ioredis, lint, babel,... you name it !!!

It just depends on what project I am doing. I love to see source codes and love to learn by them. So here are below open-source project that are favs.

  • Gatsby is best too when making statis website/blog
  • Netlify-cms -> Learning the working
  • Chromium -> Working.
  • VS-code -> It's just awesome, the thing u code on and seeing the source code of that too. And yeaaa

The best one

In college, before becoming a developer, I loved using open source alternatives to college staples, such as libre office instead of the more traditional Microsoft Word.

Vim, one of the best tool investments I've made
Git, remarkable swiss-army-knife vc tool
Deno and its standard library
LitElement/lit-html, web components actually make frontend fun again
Chrome Devtools (frontend-ui and protocol)
Chromium
Linux (Debian mostly) remarkable what you can do with old hardware or little rpi machines
SQLite

I'll try to think of more.

VS Code, DBeaver, Insomnia, just to name a few. I recently installed the Fedora 32 KDE spin on an old ThinkPad and I'm enjoying that as well.

Linux and VSCode, and Chromium. Best mix for development you can find. Not including the specifics like programming languages and frameworks and such. 😎
