In this blog post I am going to talk about some of my favorite tools for web development environment on Linux

My base setup

I use Ubuntu 18.04 on my work machine, on my laptop at home I have MX Linux which also works great and is very reliable, but on Linux you have a lot of options to choose from anyway. For my Lamp stack I use Docker, you can read about setting it up here

Apps

Terminal tools

  • Terminator - terminal emulator with multi tab support

  • ZSH - extended shell with great support to different plugins

  • mycli - a command line tool for your mysql needs

  • hostess - add and modify your host file on the fly from your command line
