I do all my work in Linux and I have a few programs I could not live without. The programs I like are all over the place and this list may grow.
A powerful, tiling windows manager. i3 is an awesome windows manager that helps me be productive and stay organized as I work. Here is a taste of what is going on while I write this post.
An awesome program for navigating the command line. Autojump stores where you cd into and you can type
jand part of the directory name you want to be in and j will guess where you want to be and get you there.
Another command line tool. Tree gives you a prettier output than ls and shows subdirectories and files. And when you pass it the
-Lflag followed by a number it will only show items to that many layers below current level.
Always use for quick edits of text files. I love not having to leave the Terminal.
Used to sync all of my school files and have them readily accessible from my tablet, phone or even a school computer.
A handy little program that monitors file system events and pipes output to your programs. Used to write this handy little script that runs the command you set everytime a file is changed in a directory. I use it all the time to rebuild a project after I update something. Works extremely well with Makefiles. This script is a child of Seve and I.
