Tools We Use
An overview of the Tools we use at Grey Software
GitHub is home to the largest software development community on the planet with over 50M+ developers and 100M+ projects. Grey software uses GitHub to manage collaborative open source software development projects and find the organization through the Github Sponsors program.
Organizations rely on GitLab’s source code management, CI/CD, security, and more to deliver software rapidly. We use Gitlab along with Github because both services offer unique features that our organization takes advantage of.
Figma is a web-based graphic and user interface design app. It allows you to collaborate on design files with your team in real time, and fits very well in the toolkit of a frontend web developer.
At Grey Software, we use Figma for our UI design and prototyping work.
Overlay is an exciting piece of technology that allows you to export Figma designs to modern web code. Since were constantly on the lookout for tools that simplify the design to development process, we are delighted to use an advocate for overlay.
HackMD allows you to work on Markdown files and collaborate with your teammates in real time. At Grey Software, we use HackMD as our Google Docs or Microsoft Word alternative for collaborating on team documents.
Workflow autmation allows our organizational processes to function with fewer errors and less time by having computers execute rule-based logic that automates manual work.
At Grey Software, we love using N8N to automate our workflows because of its fun user-interface and commitment to open-source transparency.
Most of our web content at Grey Software, including this page you're on, is written in Markdown.
Why Use Vue?
Why Use Nuxt?
We used Quasar to build Material Math
Brave Browser and Firefox
Most of our projects management and development happens on web browsers, and there are two major open source engines in the market right now: Chromium and Firefox Quantum.
Add Grey software, we regularly use both browser engines for diverse compatability, and our favorite browsers to work with are Mozilla Firefox and Brave.
VisBug is an open-source web extension that allows users to interact with their webpage using powerful tools that can edit elements and inspect styles.
Our team at Grey Software highly recommends having this extension since it has allowed us to treat the webpage as an art-board that we can edit and inspect before heading back into the code editor.
ImageOptim allows us to save disk space & bandwidth by compressing images without losing too much quality.
