Uses This

API

What do people use to get the job done?

        "contents": "#### Who are you, and what do you do?\n\nI'm an independent game designer, artist and programmer from Melbourne. I make a lot of small experimental games often with a visual focus. You can find my portfolio here: [http://ianmaclarty.com](http://ianmaclarty.com/ \"Ian's website.\"). I'm currently working on an abstract puzzle game.\n\n#### What hardware do you use?\n\nI mainly use a [MacBook Pro][macbook-pro] (2017, 13\", no touch bar). I don't use any external keyboards, mice or monitors. I dislike having to plug and unplug things and I like working in the kitchen where there's plenty of natural light. I also have an older desktop (Intel i5 CPU, 8GB RAM, GTX660 GPU, 1TB mechanical HDD, 23\" monitor) with Linux and [Windows 7][windows-7] that I use less often, mainly for testing or playing games.\n\nI have an [iPhone 6][iphone-6] that I use for testing and sometimes for music production. I also have an older [iPad][] and some older iPhones and a cheap [Android][] phone that I use exclusively for testing. I have a pair of [KRK KNS-8400 headphones][kns-8400] and a [Behringer C-1U][c-1u] microphone for audio work.\n\n#### And what software?\n\nI mostly work in the terminal and use [vim][] as my editor. I use the standard [Terminal app][terminal] on Mac and whatever the default terminal on [Linux Mint][linux-mint] is. On Windows I use [MSYS][] and [rxvt][]. I often write [bash][] or [node.js][] scripts to automate repetitive tasks.\n\nI use my own game engine called [Amulet][] which is written in [C++][c-plusplus] and uses [GNU make][make] as its build system. I use the [Clang][], [GCC][] and [Visual C++][visual-c-plusplus] compilers. I've found [Valgrind][] very useful for tracking down memory errors and leaks. I rarely use a debugger, preferring print statements (this is somewhat ironic, because I did my postgraduate research on debuggers). I write my games in [Lua][] and use [LuaJIT][] on desktop and vanilla Lua on mobile and browser.\n\nFor 2D graphics I'm currently using [Acorn][], but will sometimes use [GIMP][] when I'm working on Linux. For audio I use [Audacity][] on Mac and Linux and on my iPhone I've used [Figure][figure-ios] to produce music and [Animoog][animoog-ios] to produce sound effects. I've also used [SFXR][].\n\nI occasionally use [Blender][] for 3D modelling or trailer production. Sometimes I'll also use [iMovie][] for trailers, though it doesn't give as much control as Blender. I use [GIF Brewery 3][gif-brewery] and [QuickTime][quicktime-pro] to record GIFs and gameplay footage respectively and [Handbrake][] to transcode between video formats.\n\n#### What would be your dream setup?\n\nI'm pretty happy with what I've got. I'd like to get more into music production so if I could afford it I'd purchase [Ableton Live][live] and maybe get one of those fancy [Ableton Push devices][push].\n\n[macbook-pro]: http://www.apple.com/macbook-pro/ \"A laptop.\"\n[iphone-6]: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPhone_6 \"A smartphone.\"\n[ipad]: http://www.apple.com/ipad/ \"A tablet device.\"\n[kns-8400]: http://www.krksys.com/krk-headphones/kns-8400.html \"Over-the-ear headphones.\"\n[c-1u]: https://www.amazon.com/Behringer-C-1U-BEHRINGER/dp/B001QXCYZY \"A condenser microphone.\"\n[push]: https://www.ableton.com/en/push/ \"Unique music-making hardware.\"\n[windows-7]: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_7 \"An operating system.\"\n[android]: https://developers.google.com/android/?csw=1 \"A mobile phone platform.\"\n[vim]: http://www.vim.org/ \"A command-line text editor.\"\n[terminal]: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terminal_(OS_X) \"A console application included with Mac OS X.\"\n[linux-mint]: https://www.linuxmint.com/ \"A Linux distribution.\"\n[msys]: http://www.mingw.org/wiki/MSYS \"A Bash shell for Windows.\"\n[rxvt]: http://rxvt.sourceforge.net/ \"A terminal emulator.\"\n[bash]: http://www.gnu.org/software/bash/ \"A terminal shell.\"\n[node.js]: https://nodejs.org/en/ \"A Javascript application platform.\"\n[amulet]: http://www.amulet.xyz/ \"A Lua-based game engine.\"\n[c-plusplus]: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C%2B%2B \"A compiled programming language.\"\n[make]: http://www.gnu.org/software/make/manual/make.html \"Software to prepare code for compilation.\"\n[clang]: http://clang.llvm.org/ \"A C/C++ frontend for the LLVM compiler.\"\n[gcc]: http://gcc.gnu.org/ \"Code compiler frontends.\"\n[visual-c-plusplus]: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa187916.aspx \"An IDE for Windows software development.\"\n[valgrind]: http://valgrind.org/ \"An instrumentation and analysis tool for developers.\"\n[lua]: http://www.lua.org/ \"An interpreted scripting language.\"\n[luajit]: http://luajit.org/ \"A Lua compiler.\"\n[acorn]: http://flyingmeat.com/acorn/ \"An image editor for the Mac.\"\n[gimp]: https://www.gimp.org/ \"An open-source image editor.\"\n[audacity]: https://sourceforge.net/projects/audacity/ \"An open-source, cross-platform audio editor.\"\n[figure-ios]: https://www.propellerheads.se/figure \"A touch-based music creation app.\"\n[animoog-ios]: https://www.moogmusic.com/products/apps/animoog \"A synthesizer for iOS.\"\n[sfxr]: http://www.drpetter.se/project_sfxr.html \"A sound generator for video games.\"\n[blender]: https://www.blender.org/ \"A free, open-source 3D renderer.\"\n[imovie]: http://www.apple.com/imovie/ \"A Mac OS X video editor, included in iLife.\"\n[gif-brewery]: http://gifbrewery.com/ \"Mac software for converting videos into GIFs.\"\n[quicktime-pro]: https://support.apple.com/kb/HT201175 \"A commercial version of QuickTime.\"\n[handbrake]: https://handbrake.fr/ \"Cross-platform, open source video encoding software.\"\n[live]: https://www.ableton.com/en/live/ \"Musical creation software.\"",
