Welcome to the Bootstrapious Resources section, a curated list of the tools and websites I strongly recommend for building and optimising your business or website.

I have tested every recommendation on this page and many of the resources listed here are used by me every day.

Before digging into the awesome resources I know and trust, an important disclosure.

I build my templates with

VS Code

This is simply the best text editor I have used.

It is really quick, has a built-in support for Git and its frequent updates make it even better and better every month. Not to forget the wide selection of plugins that let you fine-tune it to exactly match your needs.

Gulp is a toolkit for automating painful or time-consuming tasks in your development workflow, so you can stop messing around and build something.

I use Gulp and its plugins to sync my code editor and browser, to add vendor prefixes to CSS, copy 3rd party libraries, everything. I can't imagine my life without it. Or I can but I wouldn't like to code the old way at all.

Pug, formerly known as Jade, is a templating language for Node.JS. 

I use it to simplify the creation of the HTML part of my templates. It eliminates the need to rewrite a code snippet in 20 HTML files as it enables you to include templates, layouts, create mixins and reuse them and much, much more.

Even though I create HTML templates, I write them in Pug :)

Windows 10 + WSL

I've always been a Windows guy for various reasons.

The Windows Subsystem for Linux lets developers run Linux environments -- including most command-line tools, utilities, and applications -- directly on Windows, unmodified, without the overhead of a virtual machine.

If you do web development on Windows, I highly recommend you give a WSL a try.

Free & powerful project management

Trello is a free collaboration tool that organises your projects into boards. In one glance, Trello tells you what's being worked on, who's working on what, and where something is in a process.

I use Trello to coordinate tasks for Bootstrapious and as my personal GTD board too.
