Do You Write Code With Your Mouse?

A book to use more of the keyboard, less of the mouse.

Years ago, I was mentored to build a personalized, scalable, and mouseless development environment.

My productivity increased. I never had that much fun coding before.

By writing a book, I would like to teach you everything I learned.

What Will This Book Bring You?

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. You'll learn as well to use timeless, customizable, and powerful tools.

How to build a personalized installer with bash scripts, to bring all your tools and their configurations easily on any computer.

Mouseless Powerful Tools

Your Mouseless Development Environment will include these tools:

You don't like some of them? No problem! You can replace Vim by your IDE, or Arch Linux by Ubuntu. I show you the "how" and you decide the "what".

A mouseless environment is often centered around the Linux shell. If you don't use a shell often, that's fine too. You'll learn step by step.

About The Author

Hi! I'm Matthieu.

I've been coding as a hobby for 20 years, professionally for 10 years.

I've worked from extra small to extra big companies, mentoring and leading developer teams.

Teaching is very rewarding to me. That's why I love writing for my blog, The Valuable Dev.

If you wonder why the book is not free or open source, I've written about that here.

Using only keystrokes for common editing operations is more efficient than mouse or menu-driven commands, because your hands never leave the keyboard.
