README.md

.dotfiles

Overview

I use of Emacs for almost everything, including my window manager (EXWM). See my Emacs pro-tips.

As such, the more-or-less advanced configurations of my former favourite Unix programs are gone (Awesome, cmus, fish, fzf, Mutt, newsbeuter, ranger, urxvt, zathura, zsh). You can search for them before the git commit README: The Big Emacs Shift.

Setup

For the list of programs I currently use, see the .pkglists/ folder.

The homeinit script fully bootstraps a user profile with required files, folders, symlinks applications.

The homeclean script removes trash files, caches and warns if critically private data is found (e.g. PGP keys).

The homesync script updates the package lists, prints the status of all known projects and optionally pushes the unmerged changes upstream.

As for managing a dotfiles repository, there are various approaches.

Direct versioning

Git makes it possible to use your home folder as a git repo, thus versioning all files directly.

cd
git init
git remote add origin <repo>
git fetch
git checkout master

GNU Stow

GNU Stow lets you symlink a project's files to an arbitrary folder.

The simplest setup would be to clone the dotfiles to, say, ~/dotfiles then run

cd ~/dotfiles
stow .

This has several advantages over direct versioning:

  • Subfolders in home are not subject to being included into the dotfiles git repository. This is especially relevant for projects under a version control system other than git.

  • No need for a .gitignore.

  • Simplified file control (add/remove/etc.).

  • You can fine-tune which program configuration to synchronize on a per-system basis.

  • You can manage several configurations for the same programs.
