My arch linux setup and beyond

To see updates you can watch the Github releases, where I will regularly document the changes that I've done.

Table of Contents

Terminal apps

zsh (shell)

Superior shell, extends bash/posix.

I'm using a stripped down version of oh-my-zsh with a lot of custom aliases.

tmux (terminal mutiplexer)

Multiple shells within the same terminal, screen splitting and much more.

To supports italic fonts, enable the terminal capabilities with:

tic -x .config/tmux/tmux-256color.terminfo

neovim (terminal editor)

Neovim with custom macros, hooks and a few plugins.

git (version control)

mpd + ncmpcpp (music player)

Music player daemon and its client.

remind (calendar)

remind is not a classical calendar application. I've tried calcurse and khal but they were trying to emulate normal GUI calendars too much and were imo just loosing in comparison. remind does it's own thing. It's a powerful DSL (domain specific language) where you define all of your entries in a text file. With this approach you can model some very sophisticated recurring entries like you've never seen before.

# simple stuff:
Oct 01 MSG Change car tires
REM [TRIGGER(easter)] MSG Change car tires

# with colors for birthdays
REM Feb 7 SPECIAL COLOR 205 0 255 BD Francis

# appointments with start and end time (via DURATION in min)
Thu AT 17:30 DURATION 90 SPECIAL COLOR 215 0 0 Rendezvous mit meinem Geld

# more complex stuff:
# taking out the trash every 14 days
# but only show me 3 days in advance
# and hide the entry if it's in the past
REM 2021-05-17 *14 AFTER SATISFY [trigdate() < realtoday()+3 && trigdate() >= realtoday()] SPECIAL COLOR 140 100 40 Plastikmüll rausstellen
REM 2021-05-18 *14 AFTER SATISFY [trigdate() < realtoday()+3 && trigdate() >= realtoday()] SPECIAL COLOR 140 100 40 Restmüll rausstellen
# these will take into account any holidays you have configured
OMIT Oct 3 SPECIAL COLOR 175 175 25 Tag der Deutschen Einheit
# and push back garbage day to the day AFTER

remind calendar view

Android apps

F-Droid is a software repository hosting free and (mostly) open source apps. If available always try to use F-Droid over the google play store. Read more on F-Droid. Most fdroid apps are also on gplay, even if I did not include them here.

If you need the google play store you can use Aurora instead. It's an alternative play store interface, allowing for private downloads and a better UI.
