I’m using Logitech MX Master 3 with my MacBook. I was in doubt purchasing a non Apple mouse for an Apple device, but they works really good together. And with the LogiOptions+ app, you can mimic all gestures via your mouse.
PhpStorm: Fantastic piece of software from Jetbrains. All my Laravel and Vue.js related coding are done in this app.
Laravel IDEA: This is a very useful plugin I use with PhpStorm. It makes me so much faster while coding.
Laravel Tinker: This plugin works as a PHP interactive shell inside PhpStorm. For running quick PHP code snippets I use it everyday.
Laravel Valet: For managing and running my PHP/Laravel projects I use Laravel Valet. Valet is a powerful tool that can run different apps on different isolated PHP versions. It’s available officially for Macs, but there is a community version for Linux which also supports almost all features. And with Valet, I use another fantastic tool called PHP Monitor, it is a GUI tool that build on top of Valet. You can monitor your local php development environment quite easily with PHP Monitor.
Laravel Ray: I’m using Spatie’s debugging tool Laravel Ray for couple of years. Besides Xdebug, Laravel Ray gives you useful options to show queries, measuring code performance etc.
TablePlus: For database management. I’m using the free version but I might purchase the full version someday. It’s absolutely unmatched.
MySQL Workbench: Another tool for database management provided by MySQL. I use it sometimes for some use cases.
VS Code: For projects other than PHP, I use VS Code as the editor.
Sublime Text 4: My go to file editor for all other task. It’s light weight, fast and simple.
Warp: This is my default terminal app in MacOS. Very handy!
Postman: Everyone knows Postman, the app for testing and documenting API endpoints.
Raycast: My Spotlight replacement in MacOS. Raycast is a brilliant app to do staff without opening multiple apps, clipboard maintenance, searching files and folders etc.
Microsoft Edge: I don’t like Chrome. Though it might be an unpopular opinion I find Edge much more mature, streamlined, and feature rich than Chrome. Edge is my default browser in laptop and in mobile. I do have Chromium installed on my machine by the way.
BitWarden: I’ve been using Bitwarden for couple of years. It is my password and 2FA manager everywhere.
Notion: For taking notes and writings, Notion is my preferred app.
Velja: A tiny app that helps me opening links from app with my intended browser. It gives you little pop-up to choose between your browsers.
MoneyLover: I started using this multi-platform app to manage my financial activities. It helped me a lot to make budget and to see an overview of my expenditures.
