Wrapping up 2021

Wrapping up the year with new tools for a great start in 2022.

Fig

Definitely the tool I cannot live without anymore. Its capacity to understand or simply list the options when typing CLI is fabulous and help you save a lot of time. Yes there are a lot of completion tools available, but Fig is clearly outsmarting its competitors by its speed, accuracy, flexibility and UI.

Tabby

I have to admit that I was a bit bored using iTerm2. It was great but quite massive and resource hungry. So, during most of 2021 I’ve been relying on the OS X de facto Terminal (or the one in VSCode).
That was true till I stumbled upon Tabby. Its UI and how you can layout the different windows inside it are making it a very promising alternative to the existing terminals.
My only regret at the time being is that Tabby is not yet supported by Fig, but that should be quickly addressed by the Fig team 😁

Github Copilot

Always on since I’ve been granted early access to it.
Yes, some suggestions are quite out of the blue, but I appreciate it’s great help in maintaining style in my code and making smart code suggestion that I would not have come up with.
It also greatly helps when you have to write very repetitive test cases or when working on some initialization routines.
