    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.

    Keep multiple browsers & devices in sync when building sites

    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).

      Really relieves the headache of going back and forth between tabs and windows copying and pasting one thing at a time. Copy images, plain text, links, etc. You can even tell it what kinds of things you don't want copied (e.g., passwords, etc.).

    • A good improvement would be made by adding a little quick response like changing the shape of the mouse or something else nearby. That would tell me clearly whether I have just copied something or not. The sound of copy acts very unreliable, and annoying when I listen to some music or working in a quiet place. It's a stupid design which fails.

    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.

      I have been using Atom for more than a year. So far the best editor for coding. The only downside is the size and how much RAM it requires to run.

    Smooth and fast. That's why I keep using this one rather than Atom
