"A man and his tools make a man and his trade". -Vita Sackville-West
This repository contains all configuration files for my desktop setup. The entire system configuration is defined in a declarative way, so recreating it and rolling back and forth can be done with confidence.
There's a few sets of files here:
.dotfiles are user-specific configuration for applications. This
includes compositor setup, neovim configuration, terminal theme, and settings
for a lot of other applications. Symlinks are placed in the home directory
pointing to the files inside this repository, so it's easy to track any changes
I use my own rust-based tool (see
src/) to keep this repository in sync with
my actual dotfiles using symlinks. It can be executed quickly with
It won't overwrite any existing files by default.
It gets the job done, and builds to a static binary, which makes bootstrapping
homesick used to work, but it's given me issues with major ruby
updates over the years. A binary-compiled
homesick clone would be great.
ansible directory contains ansible playbooks to configure dconf-based
applications and install flatpaks I use. Due to how ansible handles
can't be used for anything system wide. There's also bootstrapping issues in
trying to use it to configure pristine systems, so the scope of what ansible
handles will likely continue being rather narrow.
packages contains a few meta-packages that install all desired packages and
system-wide configuration files. See
packages/README.md for details.
sway: desktop compositor
waybar: system status bar
neovim: code editor (using LSP, tree-sitter, and quite a few plugins)
zsh: shell and main working environment (it's designed for interactive use)
foot: very fast terminal emulator in C with great defaults
gammastep: screen colour temperature based on sunrise and sundown
darkman: automatic dark mode based on sundown and sunrise
I try to upstream any fixes, tweaks and improvements whenever possible, and limit this repository to customisations and very opinionated settings only.
This neovim setup is a major part of my IDE, the other component being
grep, and many other useful command line tools. All
of these tools are pulled in via my
whynothugo-desktop meta-package. On other
platforms, they need to be installed via the distribution's package manager.
Plugins are managed via git submodules (pending: write a blog article on this).
Language servers also need to be installed via the system package manager
pacman on Arch,
brew on Darwin, etc). This means that, while the
neovim setup is portable across distributions, language servers need to be
installed via a distribution specific mechanism.
For distributions that's don't package LSPs (or have very old versions), perhaps https://github.com/williamboman/mason.nvim is a solution.
I try to keep things relatively well documented. Some settings or overrides require attention only once every couple of years (e.g.: Firefox style overrides), and keeping comments around lets me figure out what existing code does, and where I got it from.
git blame and
git log $FILE are generally be rather useful too.
rustup can be configured to use the system compiler by default:
rustup toolchain link system /usr rustup default system
