re: On GUI-shaming and a mountain of hot takes VIEW POST


Thank you very much for this, Ben. In my early years as a developer, I was happy using my tools (mostly GUI). Then I got exposed to the larger community, and for a long time, I felt like a fraud because everyone kept saying "use the CLI!" (and they keep sharing cool aliases and workflows etc 😭)

Eventually, I learnt that productivity isn't by following a specific set of rules, but discovering what works best for you. And I've made my peace. I'm okay with dropping into consoles on servers, for automation and where no good GUIs are available. But for most things, GUIs work just fine for me.
