Dotfiles

As part of my move to Arch Linux, I'm rebuilding my dotfiles from the ground up so that I can easily rebuild my setup. This repo will host the config until I completely move.

Requirements

In each package directory (see Directory Structure for clarification), there will be instructions on where the package will be available, and any additional requirements needed.

How to Use

To simply use my dotfiles for yourself, you need to run $GITROOT/unpack.sh $package where $package is i.e. bspwm, vim, etc. Note that this may unpack to both your home directory, and global locations on disk.

To completely set up the same environment that I have, you will need to bootstrap. To do this, simply run $GITROOT/bootstrap.sh. This will set up my dotfiles and any packages required to use them. Note that for this method you will need the AUR helper yay, or will need to edit the bootstrap.sh script to use your own helper.

Directory Structure

I've decided to organise my dotfiles in the following method:

$HOME
|--dotfiles
|  |--$pkgname
|  |  |--home
|  |  |  |--.config
|  |  |  |  |-- ...
|  |  |--global
|  |  |  |--...
|  |  |  |--usr
|  |  |  |  |--local
|  |  |  |  |  |--bin
|  |  |  |  |  |  |--$pkgname
|  |  |  |--...

As you can see, there is a home and a global directory - home deploys config into $HOME, and global deploys into /. This allows easily pushing config into both user- and system-level adoption.

$pkgname denotes config for an application - for instance, zsh or vim.

To see which dependencies are required by each set of configs, please see the dependencies file which details packages from the official repos, as well as the AUR.

Additionally, there may be further steps, for instance $GITROOT/$package/bootstrap.sh, which is run when bootstrapping; this will provide a one-time setup that configures the environment.
