symbolize

Use this with ex. Dropbox to keep your configuration files synced between your workstations using symbolic links

I was inspired by Ira's mackup, but I needed to have some configuration files shared between all my computers (ex. ~/.vimrc), and some available in Dropbox under their own hostname folders for backup-purpose (ex. ~/.ssh).

Installation

Put the symbolize script in your $PATH, or run the following if you have Snap:

snap install symbolize

Usage

symbolize SOURCE DESTINATIONFOLDER

Example: SOURCE exists, but DESTINATIONFOLDER does not.

symbolize ~/.ssh ~/Dropbox/config/$HOSTNAME
WARNING: The following folder does not yet exist:
  /home/slimg/Dropbox/config/maggie

Do you want to create it? (y|n) :
y

Running: mkdir -p "/home/slimg/Dropbox/config/maggie"
Running: mv "/home/slimg/.ssh" "/home/slimg/Dropbox/config/maggie/.ssh"
Running: ln -s "/home/slimg/Dropbox/config/maggie/.ssh" "/home/slimg/.ssh"

Example: DESTINATIONFOLDER has existing config, but SOURCE does not.

symbolize ~/.vimrc ~/Dropbox/config/shared
Running: ln -s "/home/slimg/Dropbox/config/shared/.vimrc" "/home/slimg/.vimrc"

Example: Both exist.

symbolize ~/.irssi ~/Dropbox/config/shared
WARNING: Both exist.

Options:
  d: Sacrifice "/home/slimg/.irssi"
  s: Sacrifice "/home/slimg/Dropbox/config/shared/.irssi"
  n: Don't do anything.

What do you want to do? (d|s|n) :
