dotfiles

This is a repository with my configuration files, those that in Linux normally are these files under the $HOME directory that are hidden and preceded by a dot, AKA dotfiles

Management

These configuration files are managed with the tool GNU Stow that is not intented originally for this purpose but works pretty well.

To use this configurations you only have to clone this repository in a directory of your home directory (~/dotfiles by default) and then use stow to "install" them, choosing the ones that you want to use.

For example to use the Vim configuration you only have to do this (from the dotfiles directory):

$ stow vim

and it would create a symlink for ~/.vim and ~/.vimrc to the same files/dirs in the ~/dotfiles/vim folder of this repository. Those symbolic links only would be created if not exists previously, in that case I recommend to make a backup of the original files first.

To remove a configuration is also very easy with stow:

$ stow -D vim

and it would remove the symbolic links.

And if you make a git pull to update this repository, you can "reinstall" the configurations to update them. Stow would first remove the previous symbolic links and then create the new ones.

$ stow -R vim

Stow is a package that you can find in the majority of Linux distributions and make the process of test/manage these configurations easier.
