Download Insomnia, so you can finally GET some REST

That tagline though. 10/10

 

Thanks for your suggestion, Enberg! I've added it :)

 
  • devdocs.io is great for API documentation and works offline.
  • MDN docs are great. If you're on a Mac and use Alfred there is a great workflow for it. That and more in My Mac Setup if you're interested.
  • npx add-gitignore for adding a git ignore file to your project for a specific language

TejasQ / add-gitignore

An interactive CLI tool that adds a .gitignore to your projects.

add-gitignore

This tiny CLI script that generates a .gitignore file for your projects.

Usage

You'll want to make sure you have NodeJS installed on your computer. Then, setup is as simple as:

  • npx add-gitignore

If you've got an older version of node that doesn't yet have npx, here's a more traditional setup:

  • npm i -g add-gitignore
  • add-gitignore macOS Emacs node # or whatever you need

Alternatively, running just add-gitignore gives you a nice multi-select interface from which you can choose what to ignore, and using the --help flag helps you out.

Special Thanks

I hope this makes your life easier.

Made with ❤️.


  • VS Code is great. If you use it, here's my setup, although it's a little out of date.

GitHub projects are a good substitute for Trello. Flexible enough and lets you organize where you are.

 

jbt.github.io/markdown-editor/ for those who work with Markdown and GitHub which helps in seeing how it will be rendered GH-style.

 

Thanks for your suggestion, Berkmann! This will help a lot of people, including me.

 
 

Good picks. Zeit Now Looks cool, I’m pretty happy with Netlify for deploying static sites via github/gitlab etc.

 

Great, Corker! I've added your suggestion to the post, thank you very much. :)

 

I use TinyPNG online service to compress JPEG or PNG files, Digital Ocean for deploying my apps, Namecheap to register domains and I started using the Cloudflare service to manage DNS settings.

 

Thanks for your suggestions, Martinez! I've added it :)

 

If you are using Visual Studio Code then consider Polaroid, it is similiar to Carbon :)
