Software development involves a lot of thinking and a bit of typing. Still, moving your hand between your keyboard and your mouse hundreds of time a day involves a context switch which costs valuable cognitive energy.

By trying to use mostly the keyboard in my workflow, I discovered how efficient and less tiring it is. That's why I wrote this book: to share this discovery.

The book will show you, step by step, how to build a customizable Mouseless Development Environment based on Arch Linux, i3, Zsh, Neovim, and tmux.

What will you get from this experience?

  • A scalable development environment where you mainly use your keyboard. It's more fun, and more efficient too!
  • Precise explanations how to configure everything, depending on your needs. You'll be in control, deciding what's more efficient for you.
  • Knowledge about Linux and the terminal. We'll also see how to use timeless, customizable, and powerful tools.
  • How to build a personalized installer with bash scripts, to summon all your tools and their configurations easily on any computer.
