Shells Everywhere

Everybody hates to hop between computers that doesn’t have your favorite prompt and aliases ready when needed. At least I hate it. Therefore I have created this hobby project to have some kind of logical structure when setting up my work environments with minimal fuzz. And reinvent the wheel.


These process flows requires that you’re entering your shell environment as a login shell. For example, in ubuntu terminal go edit -> Profile Preferences -> Title and Command -> check run command as a login shell.


Every shell environment is isolated to named folder in the project root (bash, ksh, etc). Every computer is listed as folder in env/ folder and inside them each distinct configurable component is separated to own .env file. Ideally I had mind that one could use only sh compatible script what would be runnable in every shell environment, but then I found that csh based shells are so different that it was easier to replicate the logic for both environments.

Next I will describe project structure.


Scripts that are used to bootstrap shell environments to this project


Files that are sourced on each start of a shell (global rc files).


Utility scripts that are used by shell environment initializations.

<shell name>

Shell startup scripts and shell specific source files.


Common environment modules are placed can be placed in this folder. Host specific configurations are created as sub folders (folder name is hostname -s).


Consist env-files which each consist self-consistent configuration of a component, such as java, maven, glassfish, etc.
