Collection of config files, install scripts, list of used apps

Table of Contents

How this repos config deployment works

Using ./import-configs (pull local configs into directory) and ./install-configs (install configs from directory in the system) you can get/set config files based on what you are currently using (listed in used-apps). The used-apps file lists categories defined in mappings, for example the category zsh is defined as:


Which means, that if zsh is listed in used-apps on import/install the file ~/.zshrc and the directory ~/.zsh/ will be copied.

How this repos app install works

Using ./apps-install you can install all apps that you are currently using. These are listed in used-apps, the categories of which are defined in apps. For example the NetworkManager category:

networkmanager NetworkManger

Which if nm is in used-apps will run yay -S networkmanager and sudo systemctl enable NetworkManager after the install. The first argument is the package, the rest is description. Prefixes (like systemd:), are for doing non-pacman stuff (npm install, etc.).

Warning: Not all configs in the repo are actively being used. See 'how it works' above.

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.

vim (terminal editor)

Neovim with custom macros, hooks and a few plugins.

git (version control)

mpd + ncmpcpp (music player)

Music player daemon and its client.

GUI apps

kitty (terminal)

Fast, easy to configure, batteries included.

mpv (video/audio player)

Everything you'll ever need from a video player.

rofi (application launcher/dmenu)

brave (browser)

Manual Config

Disallow sites to ask if they can send notifications

Looking at you reddit...

Search "Content" -> "Site and Shield Settings" -> "Notifications" -> Toggle

signal (messaging)

Secure messaging.


My preferred way to use Signal.

Notifications use dunst (notification daemon).


Runs on my server under a different phone number to send (cron scheduled) messages to myself.

Example use case: cut down todays meal plan into one simple image and send it to myself just before lunch time (only on days when I'm in school of course) see.

System apps

sxhkd (hotkey daemon)

The essential hotkey daemon.

i3 (window manager)

Lightweight window manager.

lock screen

i3lock with a custom screenshot script.
