Sheldon

Build Status Coverage Status Gem Version

Demo
Sheldon makes it easy for you to manage your .dotfiles and configs across all your OS X / linux devices.
The video above demonstrates adding a config file to Sheldon (sheldon learn) and recalling this config (sheldon recall) on another host.

Check out my 5 minute demo video to see more of Sheldon in action.

Requirements:

  • Ruby 1.9.3 or above.
  • The build-essential and ruby-dev packages on linux systems

Installation:

  1. gem install sheldon
  2. sheldon setup ~/Dropbox/sheldon to tell Sheldon where your existing data directory resides, or otherwise where a new data directory should be established.
  3. Sync your data directory across all your different hosts using your preferred method (Dropbox, Google Drive, Git), so Sheldon's knowledge is available everywhere.

How It Works

Add files/folders to Sheldon (sheldon learn)

Teach Sheldon about new files or directories using the learn command:

sheldon learn ~/.gitconfig
Recall Cue For File/Folder: my git config

Sheldon will move the original file/directory into his data directory and symlink the file/directory back to its original location.

ls -al ~ | grep .gitconfig
.gitconfig -> /Users/dave/Dropbox/sheldon/my git config/.gitconfig

Recall your files on other machines (sheldon recall)

Sheldon's recall command will symlink the file from the data directory to its correct location on any filesystem (even under different home directories):

sheldon recall "my git config"

ls -al ~ | grep .gitconfig
.gitconfig -> /home/vagrant/Dropbox/sheldon/my git config/.gitconfig

Pass the -i flag to Sheldon's recall command for interactive mode:

sheldon recall -i
Recall my git config (Y/N): Y
Recall my ZSH config (Y/N): Y

Open Your Configs In A Flash (sheldon open)

Want to quickly tweak that config file but can't remember where it resides on your system? No worries, Sheldon's got your back:

sheldon open "my git config"
# Your ~/.gitconfig will be opened in your $EDITOR
