I thought about starting a thread with recommendations for useful software tools for any stuff you do. Can be related to developing, or any other activity. Either something you’ve been using for years or just freshly discovered.
So I’m going to start with barrier. I’ve just started using it last week. It let’s you project your mouse and keyboard to a different computer. When I move my mouse to the edge of my leftmost screen on the desk, it appears on the laptop (which conveniently stands next to that) and takes the keyboard with it. So basically a software KVM switcher without the video. Works cross-platform and has clipboard support.
Now I can easily type an answer in IRC running on the laptop without switching keyboards.
