I tried almost every IDE and Code Editor out there but I always come back to PhpStorm. I have it conigured to display just the code hiding tabs, toolbars, sidebars, breadcrumbs... Most of the time I have the IDE window at the center of the screen in a small size. This helps me to stay focused in a few lines at a time.
I'll always go to the dark side on this matter. For now I'm using the default's IDE configuration: Darcula.
I've tried the Material Theme for PHP Storm but it started to feel buggy after a few days. Also, it doesn't have to much importancy for me since I hide everything except the code.
Since I moved from Windows back in the day I missed some way to arrange the windows on the screen. I'm using
It works with keyboard shortcuts instead of moving windows to the edge. I always modify the keystrokes for
the four corners to match
I use Safari as my personal browser because of all the features it has regarding syncing with the iPhone. I also like to check the websites I made with it since I think that currently it's the "less standard" browser out there. For develop purposes I prefer Google Chrome for request inspection and console tasks.
I use Valet for local development. Previously I've used Homestead with great results, but now I'm focusing on newer sites without backwards compatibility, so I'm fine with just one version of PHP installed in my machine.
For Email, Calendar, Reminders and Notes I use the Apple's default apps.
For music I use Spotify and honestly I can't live without it.
I own a Macbook Pro 13" with TouchBar 2017 and I'm very happy with it. The keyboard feels weird at first but I got used to it and can't use the previous version anymore.
At home I have a Dell
UltraSharp U2715H monitor for work (MacBook)
and Gaming (Windows, SNES Mini and NES Mini.
PlayStation Classic soon...
I use this Laptop Stand Bestand to put my Macbook side by side with the monitor and have two screens.
My headphones are Sennheiser HD50. They're no longer in production but mine still holds the day. The audio is awesome and I have them for almost 15 years now. They were pretty cheap for the good quality. For work I'm currently using Xiaomi Mi Headphones Comfort (can't find the link in english). They were pretty cheap and the sound is awesome. Also they have a good ambient noise reduction which is pretty helpful at the office.
I type using a Corsair K70 Lux Mechanical Keyboard. I've switched the Windows and Alt keys to match the Mac layout.
I point with a Corsair M65 Pro mouse. The back / forward buttons on the side doesn't work with the MacOSX and I haven't found any solution for this, but it's not really bothering me. The mouse feeling is awesome and I also use it when gaming on Windows.
Under the keyboard and the mouse I have a Corsair MM 300 Extended Mouse Pad. I bought it in an offer along with the mouse and the keyboard but didn't regret it. The feel is so premium and it has boat sails on it!
Desktop table is nothing important by now. It was here when we moved in and can't get rid of it. Chair is not listed yet, I'm waiting for Christoph Rumpel's decision before buying my own.
I have a lava lamp on the corner. Can't remember where I bought it but it's just awesome to have it there while coding.
