Earlier today, my sweet Mac setup was published over at The Sweet Setup, a site founded by Shawn Blanc and headed by Stephen Hackett.
For the record: a lot has changed since I wrote it and sent it in. Most importantly, I'm no longer "days away" from finishing my music degree. That's come and gone. I've since announced some new plans.
- I finally got around to switching from Simplenote to Dropbox (using this article). I'm still a loyal nvAlt user; the only differences is the syncing mechanism. On the iPhone end, I've finally settled with Byword.
- I've abandoned Atom for Sublime Text 3 once and for all. Atom is still my favorite in terms of customizability, but it was just too damn slow.
- I've added Folding Text to the mix as a general note-taking / long-form markdown writing application. nvAlt stores the notes, and Folding Text is used to edit them.
- Instead of Airmail, I've been using the Mailbox for Mac beta for a while and enjoy it, if only for its design.
Some changes to "my ideal setup" are probably warranted as well. For instance, the X-T1 is no longer my lustworthy camera of choice—instead, it's the X100T, which would replace my beloved X100S.
While I love things like this, one problem with once-posted sweet Mac setups is that they are in constant change. Looking back on it six months from now (or longer) would likely reveal even more changes. This is why I'm attempting to curate an up-to-date Recommended page (which you'll notice is coming along at turtle speed.) This way, my favorite setup is always available. In fact, I wish more people did this, as I'm a total setup geek at heart.
In any case, the rest of the article is pretty spot-on. Go read it if you haven't already.
