Software I frequently use in web design

I use various Linux distributions while working on personal web design projects. Below is a list of my favorite software packages.

Desktop and Terminal

  • LAMP
  • WordPress
  • ssh
  • sshfs – (creates a mounted file of an ssh connection)
  • tar & gzip2 – (Manual backups via the terminal of my databasae and files.)

Graphic Design

  • GIMP
  • Inkscape

Audio and Video production

  • kdenlive – video production for cuts and transtitions etc.
  • audacity – audio editing, usually to clean up noise

Text Editors

This varies a little from distribution to distribution, I frequently favor what’s preinstalled with that system.

  • gedit – (never fails me when I need a good text editor, Gedit isn’t pretty but it’s reliable)
  • xed
  • Scratch – Elementary OS
  • Mousepad – XFCE Desktop’s
  • nano – Terminal

Note-taking

Besides a pocket notebook to contain frequently used commands I use the either of the following

  • Tomboy Notes
  • Notes for XFCE

Debian 9 Stretch Desktop

Just a little show and tell from my stable Debian desktop. “Stretch” is installed on my 1TB HD and is the defacto long term storage archive for my system.

The SSD is running Peppermint 8 and my ancient 5400RPMĀ “distro hopping” drive is home to Ubuntu Mate 16.04.2 at the moment.
