These are my dotfiles. Read about them here.
There are no real, hard dependencies since these are simply configuration files, aside from perhaps the font that I use if you don't change it. That said, here are some programs I use for which these configuration files mainly exist:
- Font: DejaVu Sans Mono,
- Terminal: urxvt, AUR
- Terminal Multiplexer:
- Emacs 25
- vim + gvim:
- Fuzzy Complete:
- Searching: ag,
- Command Not Found:
- Clipboard integration:
$ git clone https://github.com/blaenk/dots.git ~/.dots $ cd ~/.dots $ dots put
Run the sprinkle script to deploy. It shows a prompt on how (or whether) to apply the files. The prompts are answered by providing the first letter of each word, e.g. "backup" would be "b". If you want to apply the action to every remaining item, capitalize the letter.
$ ./dots put · sprinkling dots from /home/user/.dots! · help: backup, overwrite, remove, skip capitalize to apply to all remaining
Once the zsh configuration files are deployed, you can use the
dots command from anywhere to both deploy the dotfiles with
dots put as well as update the dotfiles with
λ ~/.dots (master) » dots get · checking for updates since be6d115 · updated to b234aef + b234aef this is one more test + 8a9b1ab this is a test for update command
You'll want to have zsh installed and setup for your user. Install it, then run the following command.
$ chsh -s $(which zsh)
Afterward, log out and log back in for the change to take effect. The first time you open a zsh shell, zplug (a zsh package manager) will download the packages I use.
I use the Solarized color theme for everything. Run the
set-theme command to properly configure your desired variant:
$ dots set-theme light # or $ dots set-theme dark
This also installs the
.Xresources file so that URxvt uses the appropriate theme.
An environment variable
USE_SOLARIZED_DARK is exposed which, if set, means that the Solarized Dark theme is being used. This is used in Xresources, vim, emacs, tmux, fzf, and other configurations in order to fine-tune colors for the currently-enabled theme.
Command Not Found
You can get functionality where, if you enter a command that's not installed on your system, zsh will tell you which package it is available in, if it finds it in some package. This is available for Ubuntu and Archlinux.
On arch, you'll have to install
pkgfile and then generate the metadata needed for this:
$ sudo pacman -S pkgfile $ sudo pkgfile -u $ abiword abiword may be found in the following packages: extra/abiword 3.0.0-2 /usr/bin/abiword
