A computer, this doesn't have to be anything fast, super modern or specific. Just about anything that can run a modern web browser will do.
A web browser.
- which web browser you use really don't matter much for this use whatever fits you as long as it has the ability to show you the console & an inspector, both Firefox & Chrome are great at this. I normally use Firefox Developer Edition for a few extra nice tools it has but I will not be going into those at all.
that's all you really need, fairly simple right?
Some useful tools that you don't need now but might want.
A good terminal (any should work but below are some personal suggestions).
A good programming font
This should be a monospaced and Sans font with good character differences (l,i,1,| should be easy to tell apart). If you are using Windows you probably have 'Consolas' already installed and if you are using Mac you likely have 'Menlo' installed and both are good programming fonts. Some good fonts I have seen are listed below.
- Fira -- supports Font Ligatures
- Fura Powerline -- Fira with powerline support
- ProFont for Powerline -- Based on clasic Mac OS font
- DejaVu Sans Mono
- Source Code Pro
- Ubuntu monospaced
- Droid Sans Mono ZeroMod
