Thanks guys, also these tools are free right. A couple of my devs were asking if they can use it. So just wanted feedback. Thanks everyone.

As far as I know yes, you can get some extra stuff with paid fig but it's not necessary

I moved from iTerm2 to Warp and I'm happy so far. The only difference was that I had to change my prompt to https://starship.rs/ because Warp didn't support PS1 well when I installed it.

Tbh fig doesn't make sense to me, as both a product and a solution. Warp looks really cool though.

It looks like fig doesn’t support warp yet 😞

Warp isnt FOSS right? Not a fan of that

why? I assume most of us work for places that ship software or services for a fee :)

fair point. I prefer open FOSS for core workflow tools though, personally. otherwise you never know when you might get Docker Desktoped.

@Andrew Fong doesn't mean it's ethical 😛

The point I am making is that if i work at a company and I am using software to do my job then the business model should account for the cost of the software. Part of the accounting for the cost of the software is vendor management and relationship management with a partner who’s software you have adopted.

Yeah but what if I wanna use this as a daily driver tool for all my programming?
And not just at work

wouldn't the same argument apply? if the software is that useful then pay - if the company isn't trustworthy then you move away. There is a migration tax for sure but if its sum(increased productivity) > migration tax then on balance it was worth it
it's not like FOSS doesn't have the same issues, look at the recent js issues with protests leaking into the code base

There is no silver bullet
I principally prefer to use open source though

trying to understand the why since in my experience it's an arbitrary line where in the stack that gets applied

Some of this is definitely going to be arbitrary. • I'd like to support tools that I'm free to extend as much as possible • I'd like to know that the tools I'm using can easily undergo security audits whenever I can • Sharing is caring and I think Open Source adds to that With that said, OSS today isnt quite a communist utopia. LOL!
