This page details pretty much all I use as a developer. If you decide to make your own, consider adding it to Wes Bos' uses.tech. I use a Mac, so most tools are macOS specific, but there are some OS-agnostic ones in the list. You might also be interested in My Mac Setup post, although it is a little outdated.
