Here are my personal dotfiles.
- zsh - shell
- emacs - text editor of choice (literate config can be found here)
- vim/neovim - when SSHed or on a different computer
i3- window manager (linux)
My dotfiles are managed using GNU Stow. This makes it easy to add and remove modules (and their symbolic links).
This one line will clone my dotfiles and begin the installer.
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/WolfeCub/dotfiles/master/install.sh | bash -s -- -g <& 1
If you don't want to use the one liner or the install script.
You can install each module individually using
stow [name] as shown below.
This allows you to only use the modules that you want.
git clone --recursive https://github.com/WolfeCub/dotfiles.git cd dotfiles stow zsh stow emacs ...
I don't need much out of a window window manager and I want to think about
window management as little a possible while using my computer. I've found
i3 accomplishes this very well. Most of the time I have one window per
workspace however 2-3 windows is not entirely uncommon.
My preffered shell is
zsh. My customization isn't anything insanely intricate
but it's functional and I find it comfy. I
ssh a fair amount and I find that
having the user and host always visible is very handy. The exit code and time
aren't used as much but they're out of my way on the right side and they're handy
every now and then. Personally I love the syntax highlighting it helps me visually
parse the command much more easily.
- Better completion
C-zto foreground a backgrounded process
- Directory aliases
For all intents and purposes
emacs might as well be my operating system.
My emacs configuration is completely literate and can be viewed at it's documentation
or in this repo. I use
emacs for programming, writing, emails, calandar/TODOs,
presentations, IRC and more.
- GUI and terminal compatibility
- Vim emulation (E.V.I.L.)
- C/C++/C# focus
- General for keymaps and leader emulation
- Hydra for the rest of my shortcut needs
- Project management
- Email (mu4e)
- IRC (ERC)
As wonderful as
emacs is my configuration is highly customized and stock
emacs doesn't cut it for me. On remote systems or when quickly editing configs
vim is the way to go. My vim config is pretty minimal but it's very comfortable.
