Programs I use

Kinda organized. May have links to obscure things. Or all things? Googling it is probably always best. Links change.


eclipse

My preferred ide. Started with it and I like it. I end up with many copies because I make a new copy for distinct plugins. Good for java, c/c++, ceylon. Poor for rust and python. I’m sad the adt plugin was dropped.

jet brains

android studio, pycharm, webstorm, ect. Webstorm is pretty nice. Pycharm is ok. Android Studio makes me sad. Haven’t tried Clion.

visual studio

I dread needing to use it.

visual studio code

Should not have vs in the name. The experience is so much better. Best markdown preview I’ve found. Much better than Atom is every way? Atom is trash.

notepad++

For plain text, notes (new documents that never get saved or closed), quick viewing of any source file

sublime text

Great for basic code editing

rstudio

What else are you going to use with r?

texstudio

On the off occasion I need/want letex

gvim

Default program for xml files (they can be big)


Languages

ruby, haskell, racket, and perl might be there somewhere.


git for windows (git bash)

Default terminal. Git guis fail.

cygwin

Fuller than git bash. It has unix python. Makes ipython better.


7zip

What else would you use?

rapidee

Clean environment variable editor. Was more important before windows 10 but still nice.

openhardwaremonitor

How hot ‘s your stack?

Virtualbox

Not 100% garbage


firefox

My preferred browser. I like the ui. I prefer a separate search bar.

chrome

Used for flash.

thunderbird

Boring email client

steam

What else would I use?

hexchat

On the rare occasion I need irc. No strong attachment to it. It was just the first free one I found and it works well enough.

obs

Screen recording and streaming.

pviewer

Better than windows 10 Photo app. Still pretty bad.

paint[.]net

Simple image editor. prt scr, ctrl v, s, drag selection, ctrl c, paste to twitter, imgur, ect.

gimp

Complicated, bloated beast I only use on rare necessities

wiinusoft

Lets me use my Wii U Pro controller on Windows

ffmpeg

Because an mp4 isn’t just an mp4.

livesplit

A timer.

wsplit

Older and simpler timer

fiddler

I have never used this.

Windows media player

Used for my music collection. Also random midis

VLC

Used for weird stuff and videos.

streamlink/livestreamer

Play online videos in VLC. Was more important when twitch needed flash but it still sometimes has problems.

musescore

Bad but best free option. Say something about it on twitter and get a dumb response from support

audacity

Ride dem waves

anvilstudio

Ok midi editor. Not really good. Everything is bad actually.
