desktop configurations. function over forme, though things being pretty is nice, when thus making them ain't interfere'n with productivity

Structure

.config/init/ contains vars, a file defining shared variables for the desktop which are sourced and used elsewhere. these settings can be overridden by creating a "voverride" file in the same directory. .config/init also contains a series of "gen/*.sh" files, which create configuration files in /tmp/ so programs not configurable via shell scripting will automatically match the current settings as well. i stick symlinks to the /tmp/ version where they would normally be. also included are folders "funcs" and "funcreqs", which, respectively, contain executable scripts and their prerequisite commands and arbitrary check commands. the latter prerequisites are tested from .zprofile at login and, if passed, the functions are symlinked into /tmp/funcs, which is included in $PATH. thus, this system allows for configs which automatically adapt to the host environment, enabling only what functionality is compatible. so far i've been the only user on systems using this config, but will probably make the dir these are written into configurable as well if that ever happens.

Current Utilities

nvim/vim

using nvim, but no big incompatibilities with base vim yet with the way i use it, so falling back works fine. have a few fun things, including auto-loaded, filetype-specific settings and basic templates, a few fancy mappings, and a simple 16-colour colourscheme. take a look at muh .vimrc for details and things.

herbstluftwm

herbstluftwm has the really interesting concept of allowing manual tiling of frames and then providing automatic layouts for inside those frames. in theory, it's the best of both worlds, but it gets kind of confusing, so i've just set the layout to always be max. this way frames basically just have multiple tabs for me that can by cycled through. it's really neat for saving screen space! (try splitting a screen with both an editor and a terminal on one side and all your documentation on the other). i3 can do much the same thing, but it comes with lots of slightly annoying things to get rid of.

urxvt

has some quirks, but still nothing else out there with the same functionality. check out urxvt-perls.

ranger/sxiv

both are fantastic for keyboard-driven file management, but still've got to figure out how to write a ranger extension that can receive selections from sxiv, because squinting at filenames is just bleh. python is my bane, though...

pass

a nice password manager-a-ma-bob, gpg locked and easy to sync with git. there's a firefox addon, but it doesn't really work, and there's an existing dmenu frontend, but it's not very featureful, so i wrote my own.

dunst/dmenu/compton/lemonbar/nitrogen

useful things all around. i forked dunst to make SIGUSR1 clear all notifications, which is used by mpc-status.sh and pvol.sh.

fcitx

input is messy, but fcitx seems like the most functional out there at the moment. fcitx-mozc a nice.
