I use shortcuts on my devices all the time. Shortcuts are great, they let you perform complex actions in a fraction of the time — time that adds up a lot over time when you’re using the device for 10 hours a day.
In this post, I’ll be going over some of the typical shortcuts I have set up and use on a daily basis, and some of the applications I use to get them working.

Laravel’s Blade templating engine offers a ton of convenient directives you can use to make your view files beautiful and abstract anything that may be too complex or verbose to live inside HTML.

But over the years, they’ve all mostly faded away with two standing at the forefront: Slack for professional use, and Discord for gaming and casual use.
I use both on a daily basis, but strongly prefer Discord out of these two options, for both general use and coding discussion. Here I’m going to explain why Discord is better.
