Computing


This page includes most of the software I use/recommend. Only free as in freedom and opensource software is included. I Also emphasize on using software that is minimal. My config files for the software listed is available in my dotfiles repository (see git). Maybe a note about my hardware too ...



System

My main system is a sturdy Lenovo Thinkpad T400 running Arch GNU+Linux. I use the dwm window manager and the st terminal. My System is built for using the terminal as much as possible and vim keys are used everywhere.

An old Packard-Bell laptop runing Debian 11 GNU+Linux serves as my home server. I mainly use it to store weekly backups of my /home and as multimedia server aswell.

Web browser & search engine

Every web browser is bad, so I mostly use w3m for browsing static websites. For browsing the modern web, I use a Hardened Firefox install. Most of the job was done by a very useful settings generator called ffprofile, link here. The rest is just small tweakings and the usual privacy extensions.

I use the privacy respecting SearX Engine. I use a custom link to save my settings without using cookies. All I need to do is to set this link as my firefox homepage so everytime it is launched, my settings are loaded.

Mail Client

I use the best E-mail client in existence : Neomutt. Fast, lightweight, minimal, runs in terminal and you can use vim keys ! Setting up Neomutt used to be a chore but the awesome piece of software mutt-wizard does everything for you.

RSS Client

Social media is utter garbage so I use RSS for reading blogs, news, and watching youtube. I use the Newsboat client which is light and exentensible. It runs on the terminal and has many benefits such as custom keybindings, macros and color configuration.

Text Editor

Neovim, who would have guessed.



I guess that's it for the most note worthy stuff, I might add some more in the future. Feel free to send me a mail if you have any questions (mail and PGP key available on the home page).
