About

These are dotfiles/config files to set up systems the way I like it. I am running on Windows and occasionally on Linux so files are split into two categories.

If you want to give these dotfiles a try, you should first fork this repository, review the code, and remove things you don’t want or need. Please don’t blindly use my settings unless you know what that entails.

Windows setup

Warning: Please don't use Windows dotfiles in Linux environment, some things will not work (that's the reason I have them split into separate categories).

It's a bit harder to configure am almost identical setup to Linux on Windows but it's possible.

Requirements (stuff I use):

  • Git for Windows - https://git-scm.com/. Git for Windows provides a BASH emulation used to run Git from the command line. Also includes many Linux utilities ported to work on Windows.

  • ConEmu - https://conemu.github.io/. ConEmu is a Windows console emulator with tabs, which presents multiple consoles and simple GUI applications as one customizable GUI window with various features.

  • Far Manager - https://farmanager.com/. Far Manager is a program for managing files and archives in Windows operating systems. Far Manager works in text mode and provides a simple and intuitive interface. If you're familiar with Midnight Commander from Linux world you will not notice a difference.

  • Screeny - https://github.com/slava23/WinScreenyCmder. WinScreenyCmder is Screenfetch for Windows.

All files necessary to set up a working environment are available in the repository.

Windows Dotfiles

Windows WSL setup

The Windows Subsystem for Linux lets developers run Linux environments -- including most command-line tools, utilities, and applications -- directly on Windows, unmodified, without the overhead of a virtual machine.

Linux setup

Nothing fancy, pretty much standard Debian/Ubuntu installation compatible. I use tmux and split my terminal to have four workspace windows available. Terminal font is "Noto Mono" from Google - https://www.google.com/get/noto/

All files necessary to set up a working environment are available in the repository.
