Website Update: Tools section
A while ago I noticed that the tools section of my website was horribly outdated, so recently I decided to do something about it. It was still largely displaying tools from when I still used Windows as my primary operating system, which was a long time ago now!
The new revision changes it to display icons only instead of icons and screenshots, as screenshots aren't always helpful for some of the tools I now use - and it also makes it easier to keep the section updated in the future.
I also switched to use a tab separated values file (TSV file) instead of a JSON file for the backend data file that the tools list is generated from, as a TSV file is much more convenient to hand edit than a JSON file (JSON is awesome for lots of things and I use it all the time - it's just not as useful here). If you're interested, you can view the source TSV file here: tools.tsv
I'm still filling out the list (each item in the list also necessitates an update to my personal logo collection), but it's already a huge improvement from the old tools list. Things like GitHub's Atom IDE, Ubuntu, Mozilla Firefox, and KeePass2 are currently my daily drivers - so it's great to have them listed there.
