dotfiles

This repository contains dotfiles and other configurations that match my preferences for working on the macOS or Linux (primarily Debian variants) platforms.

It uses Nix and Yadm to provision and install almost everything.

Installing

To start, you'll need to create SSH keys and upload them to GitHub so that Yadm can download this repository onto the machine.

First, create the key:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install ssh
ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -C "aaron@ecomaz.net"
eval $(ssh-agent -s)
ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa

Next, add it to GitHub. Here's how to print out the key. Do this and then copy it onto your clipboard:

cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub

Then, go to github.com/settings/ssh/new, name the key (for example: "My new machine!") in the Title box, and paste the public key value into the "Key" box

Install Nix, then Yadm

This part is a bit roundabout. You'll do this:

  • Install Nix
  • Use Nix to install Yadm
  • Use Yadm to download this repository

First, install Nix (this will require root access):

curl -L https://nixos.org/nix/install | sh

Then, instal Yadm:

nix-env -iA nixpkgs.yadm

And finally, use Yadm to install these dotfiles:

yadm clone https://github.com/arschles/dotfiles.git

Install Everything Else

These steps are a bit long but worth it. You can now keep your machine up to date with all changes to this dotfiles repository, forever.

All of the packages are specified in config.nix and installable with the Nix package manager. The above steps purposely don't install everything in that file because that can take a while. Do the install with the follow command:

nix-env -iA nixpkgs.myPackages
