For about a month now I’ve been using GitKraken every day, which has entered public beta some weeks ago. It’s quite a neat GUI client for git, making all kinds of tasks nicer to perform and the best thing: It’s really cross platform and available for Linux, my operating system of choice.
When working with code, especially with front end code, you might want to see a diff of two files. Maybe you have a build tool that’s doing something with it or just two different versions. The point is: You want to know exactly if two files are the same or just have all the differences […]
Cyberduck is a very user friendly SFTP/FTP client that focuses a lot on big icons, drag and drop and nice status icons. You can save multiple hosts, so you can easily change between your servers.
FileZilla is another program I simply would have a very hard time living without. It’s simply the one of the BEST FTP/SFTP clients ever, mostly because it works on Windows, Mac OS and Linux. I use it for my company projects and as a standard practise for my students as a teacher. It’s an open […]
One of my all time favourite tools on Windows is Putty, because with it, I can connect to Linux boxes and servers, which is where I can actually work 😉 SSH, the Secure Shell Host protocol, is the default type of connection you have to a Linux servers text based console interface and is frequently […]

Sadly one of them did not run on HTTPS and I brought up a security concern to the administrator.

Last update: 2016-10-24. Atom Theme: Seti/Monokai First of all I want to promote the SETI-UI and Monokai packages, […]
I’m currently tasked with the revision of some lecture material for basic HTML, CSS and PHP studies, so I thought I should give gitbook a try. It’s a super sweet generator for creating an interactive website, a pdf and even epub from a loosely structured bunch of MarkDown files. You can imagine I love that.
GitGutter is an amazing idea, that gained a lot of traction through the Sublime Text plugin created by J.D. Isaacks. The plugin lets you see which lines have been changed since the last git commit, right in your editor, while you’re coding. This is brilliant and it will prevent you from unwanted changes and make you […]
