You don't need any "mandatory" equipment. In order to start developing for TON, it is enough to use https://github.com/ton-community/blueprint for your project. "Blueprint" will greatly simplify the building, testing of smart contracts and their deployment.
Are there any minimum/recommended hardware requirements for developing on TON? And is there any "necessary" software like Xcode is for iOS development? Is it necessary to have a full-fledged IDE or any code editor will do?
