I get so annoyed when I find myself using random websites 🤮 or all different apps 🤷🏻♂️ to do things like format JSON, test regex’s, encode/decode Base64, encode/decode URLs, or convert Unix time strings.
This nifty little Mac app does all the basic things any developer regularly needs natively, locally, and offline. And it’s free if you build it yourself. Or pay for the official build. Up to you.
Proxyman looks like a really nice alternative to Charles Proxy, which is very functional but drearily cross-platform app for Mac, Windows, and Linux.
Other examples are Mac-assed Mac apps are the Paw REST client as an alternative to the cumbersome Postman and Things as a true Mac-first app. And I’ll add Mail as an alternative to the crusty Outlook, which is slow to load and I just cannot use because it doesn’t support the standard Mac keyboard shortcuts (e.g. Clrt-A, Crtl-E).
What can I say, I just love these true Mac-assed Mac apps because they’re fun and easy to use. 🤷🏻♂️
