lytedev's dotfiles

My various configuration files. I can't recommend using them directly, just take what you like.

🖥 Upstream🐙 GitHub Mirror

Basic Setup

curl -LO lyte.dev/df.sh && sh -i df.sh

Manual Setup

git clone https://git.lyte.dev/lytedev/dotfiles.git "$HOME/.config/lytedev-dotfiles"
"$HOME/.config/lytedev-dotfiles/common/bin/dotfiles-setup"

Repo Structure

My dotfiles are composed together by layering "environments" since I want my dotfiles to be flexible across servers, laptops, desktops, and even my phone (via Termux).

lytedev-dotfiles
|- common --- common to all hosts and operating systems
| |- bin ------- programs or scripts useful to all hosts/OSs
| |- data ------ shared storage for certain scripts
| '- {app...} -- configuration related to {app}
|- host ----- specific to specific hosts or types of hosts
| |- desktop --- for desktop-class machines
| |- headless -- for server-class machines with no display/GUI
| '- laptop ---- for portable, battery-having machines
'- os ------- specific to operating systems
	|- linux ----- you alread know <3
	|  |- desktop ------ for desktop-class machines
	|  |- headless ----- for server-class machines with no display/GUI
	|  |- bin ---------- programs/scripts useful to linux machines
	|  |- {distro...} -- configuration related to {distro}
	|  '- {app...} ----- linux-specific configuration related to {app}
	'- macos ----- for those stupid macbooks work tries to make you use

Any environment should be able to extend the configuration of any application in some unique way. This isn't possible with all applications, of course, since some programs do not make it easy (or possible) to include multiple configuration files or to extend a single file by having it include others via globs or some other mechanism.

One example of doing this well is with fish:

for s in $ENV_PATH/*/config.d.fish; source $s (dirname $s); end

This way, if any environment (a dir in $ENV_PATH) has a config.f.fish script inside, it will be sourced by the main configuration file.

Likewise, some setup only happens in certain environments via the dotfiles-setup.d.fish script.

One important note on environments is that even though they are laid out like a tree (directories), you do NOT automatically get the parent-environment's configuration, so if you are setting up a Arch Linux desktop machine, you cannot only link the os/linux/arch and host/desktop environments but will also need to include os/linux if you want the Linux-generic configuration.

Post-Setup

You will want to symlink relevant environment layers into the $ENV_PATH in order to have your OS-specific applications be configured and common applications configured for the host OS.

There's a handy fzf-based script that makes this super easy (note that you can select multiple environments with TAB):

dotfiles-link-environments

You can also list the possible environments:

cat $DOTFILES_PATH/common/envs

And then link them yourself (note that environments must be in $ENV_PATH and cannot be nested, so replacing slashes with dashes is a nice way to show what's going on):

ln -s (pwd)/os/linux $ENV_PATH/os-linux
ln -s (pwd)/os/linux/arch $ENV_PATH/os-linux-arch
ln -s (pwd)/host/laptop $ENV_PATH/host-laptop
ln -s (pwd)/host/laptop/third $ENV_PATH/os-laptop-third
# etc...

And run setup again once you've finished linking all related environments:

dotfiles-setup

Updating

Fork this repo, update your origin to point to your fork, and commit changes:

git remote origin set-url $YOUR_REPO

Then you can just pull your changes down from wherever.

No I want your updates

You don't. I rip and tear my dotfiles all the time and will break your entire machine. Remember about not using other people's dotfiles directly?

But if you must, you can add an upstream remote to point to my repo:

git remote add upstream https://git.lyte.dev/lytedev/dotfiles.git

Then you can fetch and merge in my changes whenever you want:

git fetch upstream
git merge upstream/master

Todo

  • Setup host/desktop/bin/reboot-to-windows to use efibootmgr and simply grep for the boot entry
    • Maybe also a script for cleaning up bad boot entries?
