My file system
Think of Desktop as a kind of
todo pile. Just folders/files that I am actively working on.
One example of how it looks
move folder is when things get out of control with too many files in ~/Desktop, I 'archive' them for later into
move folder to sort later.
Contains pretty much all my non code files/videos/.. The folder synced with iCloud and I can access it from my phone too.

A huge folder of downloads, both torrent and from a browser.
I sort the folder by
recently modified in Finder and act on each file as need arises.
Once in a while I try sort through contents of it so the folder doesn't get too large without items being acted upon. Ideally useful things are neatly organized into
I use this workflow to scan through contents of the folder from Alfred quickly. Workflow will show most recently added item as first item so I can instantly press
return to open it.
Everything that is code is put into this folder. Share some contents of it here.

I often love checking out various GitHub repos. Everything that I clone, I clone into this folder. I use km macro that will clone the repo that is currently open in my Safari tab. It will put the repo in
~/clones and then open it in VS Code. I also have similar macros that will only clone the repo or clone the repo and open it in Sublime Text.
I then filter contents of the folder with this workflow.
Repos I forked and actively work on go here.
Contains different extensions to various apps in form of workflows/plugins.
