This site is built with:

macOS/iOS/iPadOS multi-OS software:

macOS only

  • Acorn: for some image editing on macOS.
  • GitHub Desktop: for GitHub stuff on macOS.
  • VS Code: for all my macOS coding.
  • Sublime Text: an awesome macOS code editor I used to use a lot (but they don’t have an iOS version — boo).

iOS/iPadOS only

Software I used to use but either rarely use or don't use at all now (but still deserves a mention):

My current hardware:

  • Late 2020 MacBook Pro: M1, 16GB RAM, 13 inch.

  • Third Generation (2019) 12.9 inch iPad Pro 256GB.
