I usually code on slow computers. These things help me keep sane.

### Use as much terminal/cmd as possible.

• git
• npm start

No GUI software can beat the terminal’s speed.

Tip: To speed things up create .sh/.bat files so that you can run repeated commands with a click of a button

### If your backend is pretty stable, run the packaged file.

In my case when I am focused on angular development only, I run the .war file in a separate terminal.

### Run apps separately

Instead of using the terminal from VS Code, use a separate application.

If one application crashes at least the other one is loaded.

In my case, I have made changes to settings.ini files for STS (A Java IDE).
