Top 5 tools of 2015
For my last article of the year, I want to present 5 tools that, I think, deserve more attention
To make is very simple MobaXterm is a SSH client on steroids.
If you're still using PuTTY, please stop immediately and download MobaXterm now!
Clang-format is a tool that automatically indent and format C++ source code.
Say good-bye to manual formatting and long standing debate about the position of braces.
Vagrant is a command line tool to spawn virtual machine.
I can't even remember when was the last time I opened the VirtualBox GUI.
git merge --squash
--squash flag, Git merges a branch as if it was only one commit.
This means that you loose the history of changes inside the branch, which is usually a good thing because it cleans up all the research for the final working solution.
As a side effect, you get an history of the master branch that is so clear that you could use it a changelog.
Too bad it's not possible to squash-merge from the GitHub GUI.
UPDATE 2016-04-04: It's now integrated in GitHub!
ScreenPresso is a screen capturing tool. It allows you to add annotations and draw arrow on the picture.
It's very handy for bug report.
Not really a new tool, but I've been using it every day of 2015.
In particular, I recommend the following plugins:
Happy New Year 2016!
