Tech and Tools I use

Authors
Tools

A list of tools I use whether for:

  • Personal side projects
  • My full-time job
  • Or working with clients

Code

The code editor I'm currently using is VSCode, but sometimes while using Ubuntu, I use Sublime Text.

stacks

  • Primary stack:

    • Django.
    • Serverless functions are written in Python (when required).
    • API integration with Python (when required).
    • Test integrations (ex. pytest, unittest, etc).
    • Markdown, Yaml, JSON, etc... (when required)
    • Tools like Celery, Redis, Postgres, etc...
  • Secondary stack:

    • FastAPI, Starlette, Pydantic
    • Postgres, RabbitMQ, Redis (when required)
    • Uvicorn, httpx
      • Tools like: pytest, pytest-asyncio, pytest-cov, pytest-mock, etc...

This stack mostly I use it while building my opensource projects or with some clients, I work with.

Checkout my opensource project authx.

I use Git bash as my terminal when I’m on windows, iTerm2 with "oh my zsh" themes when I’m on macOS.

Optional tools
