Installation

If you want to kick the tires, you can simply:

curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/megalithic/dotfiles/main/bin/_dotup | /usr/bin/env zsh

The install script will install things and symlink the appropriate files in ~/.dotfiles to your home directory (~). Everything is configured and tweaked within ~/.dotfiles, though. The majority of files and folders get stowed in to your $HOME, or to $XDG_CONFIG_HOME.

I have tried to be platform agnostic, but the majority of scripts that run here are for macos, with a handful of debian/ubuntu linux specific platform scripts and provisions. This means that certain tools/binaries I rely on may or may not install/configure on linux. Though, I have tested it decently well on an Ubuntu-based Linode instance.

I highly recommend you dig into the scripts and configs to see what all is going on (because it does a lot that I'm not describing here) before you install a stranger's shell scripts all willy-nilly, throwing caution to the wind. 🤣

Things

A few of the must-have tools I roll with:

Stuff

The file hierarchy:

  • bin/: Anything in bin/ will get added to your $PATH and be made available everywhere.
  • Everything else is handled by custom installers based upon the current platform; otherwise, stow handles the rest (clean and easy symlinking).

Privates

Use ~/.localrc as your location for sensitive information. Optionally, you can let bin/_dotup handle the cloning of your private repo to ~/.dotfiles/private, which will execute an install script, assuming it's located at ~/.dotfiles/private/install.sh.

NOTE: You'll want to be sure to setup an SSH key for github access to this repo and likely to your private repo too: https://docs.github.com/en/free-pro-team@latest/github/authenticating-to-github/generating-a-new-ssh-key-and-adding-it-to-the-ssh-agent
