Dash 4

Instant offline access to 150+ API documentation sets

Prevents you from having to spend time going to multiple websites to access documentation. Access them all in one app!

+1000. Dash is seriously a must have. I'm constantly using it to quickly look up docs. It's always faster than opening a browser and searching. Plus, bonus: if you're on a plane or for some reason without internet, it makes development still possible since all docs are cached locally.

Writing code alone is fun, but when you need to collaborate with other developers - Github is the place.

Smart cloud clipboard history and snippets manager for Mac

A clipboard manager is a must have. This is my favorite. The UX is beautiful/simple. It saves everything you copy (even images). You can search through old snippets (super useful for old code snippets you suddenly remember you need).

I've tried about 5+ different code editors. This one is the best.

I constantly find things I love about Atom! If you use Github—its almost a no-brainer with their elegant integration.
