Every time someone posts their multi monitor setup I'm looking at my setup and be like: "Will this community accept me?"

    @tysa Nope, Vim

    @meain ofc. Though can that macbook handle heavy ide's and emulations ?
  • 3
    @tysa Never really had to emulate anything, but never had any issue with ides.

    multi monitor doesn't always mean more productive, I find libraries and laptops far more productive per hour :)

    also, whys the printer wearing a towel?

    is that i3/dwm/some other sort of window manager instead of a desktop environment?
  • 0
    @sage I use macOS, so not other window managers. I do use 'em(i3) on my another(linux) system. In here I do use tmux though!

    Btw I once tried using hammerspoon and one other method to kinda emulate tiling wm but didn't really work out.

    @mfmbarber The printer was kinda getting dusty, I don't use it much.

    @edisonn I don't really think it's poor productivity-wise, is just that it's not cool.

    @meain How many lines did you squeezed into this tiny screen?

    @hayz Well, I like small fonts apparently

    I use the same setup, I have a dual monitor desktop but I rarely use it, laptops are so much more versatile. I can work from anywhere even this cool beer bar.. Fun stuff.

    @sergioct I do kind of regret it at times, but not so much

    @mfmbarber do you know how much time you lose each time you press cmd/alt+tab to change window contexts? Compare that with a multimonitor environment where you only have to rotate your head slightly. 😆

    @fergor that's a good point, but I'll counter it by saying the other monitor often contains hacker news or reddit :P

    @fergor I use 3 finger swipe. #justsaying

    Single screen, macOS, vim, wired headphones... No, you will never be accepted... Lol, jk. Whatever environment works best for you is all that matters.

    But seriously, if you haven't given a multi screen environment a serious try, you just don't know what you're missing.

    I kinda prefer one screen. Easier to focus and I don't have to move my head. (Taking lazy to a whole nother level)

    @AshMountDigger Did try once, was not a big fan!

    @adorkable Lazy beats cool

    We will as you may be using the flux app 😉

    haha exactly the same setup i used for years (Y) MacBook air is actually pretty powerful. only comes to lags when you use xcode for a longer time (even without emulation) android studio is also pretty heavy to use as i remember.

    Know the feeling. Using multiple desktops with 4 finger swipe on a 2011 MBP

    Having two monitors is super awesome, you can watch videos on one, whilst gaming on the other, all while not doing any of the programming you should be doing :)

    Seriously though, I mainly use my second monitor for other things, such as searching to fix bugs and learning new techniques I can use.

    Of course you're accepted. Apparently, we just had to sniff around your desk and examine what book, ide, wm and headset you use. After a bark at your Mac, we wag our tails and accepts...
