This repo uses rcm for management. It's pretty neat, you should check it out.
It also heavily uses the tag feature of rcm. It's really just for organizational purposes, but it also means that you could do neat things like just pull down parts of my dotfiles if you'd like:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:gfontenot/dotfiles.git .gfontenot-dotfiles rcup -d .gfontenot-dotfiles -x README.md -x rcrc -t git
I settled on a pattern for my dotfiles that I'm pretty happy with. It's a modification of the pattern holman uses, which is where I forked my dotfiles from originally years ago.
Files and directories located in the root of a tag will be symlinked into
place by rcm as expected. However, many tags also have a
which is explicitly ignored by the
rcrc. This directory holds files
that are critical to the operation of my dotfiles, but shouldn't be symlinked
out of this directory. Most of the time, these files are extensions to my zsh
configuration, and end in
zsh. I feel that breaking out my aliases and other
specific configurations into smaller files helps me keep a better mental model
of how my dotfiles are structured. My zhrc will source all files ending in
zsh located in these
source directories, with the exception of any
completion.zsh files, which are explicitly sourced last.
