Clone the dotfiles repo to $HOME/.dotfiles as a bare repo. We will checkout the files into their actual places in our home dir.

cd $HOME
git clone git@github.com:shtylman/dotfiles.git .dotfiles -n

Get the script to work with dotfiles. dotfiles will act as git when we want to edit our dotfiles.

GIT_DIR=$HOME/.dotfiles/.git GIT_WORK_TREE=$HOME git reset HEAD -- bin/dotfiles
GIT_DIR=$HOME/.dotfiles/.git GIT_WORK_TREE=$HOME git checkout -- bin/dotfiles

See how your current homedir differs from expected dotfiles setup

bin/dotfiles status

To put dotfiles in $HOME into same state as repo dotfiles run this command. WARNING it will override any existing files. So make sure you do dotfiles diff first to see if you care.

bin/dotfiles reset HEAD --hard
