A different gorgeous desktop background each day. Different “channels” let you switch themes or have variety across multiple monitors. Pair with Momentum dashboard

A nice Ruby-based static site generator. I have built and continue to maintain multiple sites in Jekyll, including The Roots of Progress (rootsofprogress.org) and my personal homepage (jasoncrawford.org)

The best modern text-editor-that-is-not-quite-an-IDE-but-almost. I've mostly moved to VSCode for coding, but still use Sublime for editing Markdown (e.g., for static sites in Jekyll)

A nice modern IDE, great for working with TypeScript
The perfect new-browser-tab experience: a gorgeous picture, the time, and an optional daily goal you can type in. Helps keep you focused instead of distracting you

Beautiful and functional note-taking app for Apple users (Mac + iOS). I was sold on the tagging system, which is easy to use and supports hierarchical tagging

Best way to manage multiple Twitter accounts (e.g., for a brand), or to keep tabs on a Twitter search term. Also a good way to tweet something without being tempted to check your main timeline

Really well-designed globes of all kinds—Earth, the Moon, Jupiter, etc. Solar-powered with an internal motor, they turn by themselves when exposed to light. Very nice piece of decor
