Pimp my terminal
As a Linux user, I enjoy working with the terminal, and I find it an especially powerful tool. Therefore, I've spent quite a long time customizing it, and here is my definitive guide for terminal customizations.
First I thought I would only create a short post with some of the tweaks I like. But I had so many things I wanted to show that this started to become a considerably long post. So I've decided to publish it now, with as many tips as I can write, and I'll be updating it with new tips & tricks.Read more ↦
Kali 2020.1 visual updates
Today Kali 2020.1 has been released and with it lots of new visual changes for its desktop. The following is a brief feature summary for this release:
- Non-Root by default
- Kali single installer image
- Kali NetHunter Rootless
- Improvements to theme & kali-undercover
- New tools
But here I'm not going to explain all the latest improvements that have been introduced in this version but to reveal all the different themes and visual modifications that come with it. By the way, an essential change that I do want to emphasize is the switch to a default non-root user, with the username "kali" and password "kali". For more of the reasons behind this switch, please see this blog post: kali.org/news/: Kali Default Non-Root User.Read more ↦
Kali 2019.4 new themes 🐉
Today Kali Linux 2019.4 just launched, and I'm so excited to announce that, for the last two months, I've been working together with the Kali team developing all its new look. The first noticeable change is the move from Gnome to Xfce as the default desktop. This change was made to make default Kali more comfortable for low resource computers, as it is also commonly used on small ARM devices that don't have as high performance as an average desktop.
If you don't want to leave Gnome, don't worry. Kali now offers a Gnome build for you with some of the new desktop themes. As this release was focused on the Xfce DE change, most of the latest changes were intended for this desktop. For next releases, more changes will be available for all kali flavors to get them "close" to a similar user experience no matter the environment you run.

Build a PHP minimal Blog
When I was about to create this new fancy blog for my website, I was wondering what would be the easiest way to implement it without losing much time programming. Moments later, I was doing the same thing I always do when something could be just straight forward. Using an existing framework? Would you say...
Noup! I created my own ultra-minimal framework to handle it. But that is great because now I can blog in my blog about the blog! 🤯
If that makes any sense at all.

Swagger-js, tips and tricks
Exactly as they define it in their github repository:
Finally! I've added a blog to my personal website 😎
Since I created this website I've been using it as a personal portfolio and a place to share my projects with the world. But many times I've felt I wanted to upload something less serious, not just projects. Something like tutorials, cool tech related posts, or just my thoughts... That's why I've just opened this blog and I hope I'll be adding lots of posts soon.Read more ↦
