Files in the top-level directory from the latest check-in
This repository is for trivial things, such as program configurations
and simple utility scripts. It exists mostly as an off-site back-up
for these things, and also as a means of quickly sharing examples.
If you find anything in here helpful, feel free to use it, noting the
terms in the file LICENSE. I also request that you do not use anything
in this repository as a substitute for learning to configure/write
these things for yourself. This is not intended to be a one-stop
shop for the Right Way To Set Up Your Computer; it's just a bunch
of stuff that works for me, personally. I mention this only because
of the increasing popularity of anti-DIY pre-configured set-ups,
particularly for shells and editors.
Hidden files ("dotfiles") are a misfeature that grew out of a bug,
as Rob Pike explained , and they needlessly clutter users'
homedirs. Therefore, where possible, I have programs look for
their configuration in fully visible files, usually in ~/local/cfg
(XDG_CONFIG_HOME ). The directories under ~/local roughly mirror
the layout of a standard Linux system, but with the following name changes.
Configuration files live here. The name's a bit more obvious than "etc".
Miscellaneous program data requiring little to no user interaction.
