GitHub based dotfiles

Not much new here, this is just my take on StreakyCobra's excellent work, with these differences:

  • I made two repos, one for dotfiles, one for scripts that go into $HOME/bin.
  • I made two commands dotf and binf that correspond to StreakyCobra's config.
  • incorporated github repos dotf and binf as noted.

# create github repo "dotf"
git init --bare $HOME/.dotf
alias dotf='/usr/bin/git --git-dir=$HOME/.dotf/ --work-tree=$HOME'
dotf config status.showUntrackedFiles no
dotf add .bash_profile

dotf commit -m "first import"
dotf remote add origin
dotf push -u origin master

# create github repo "binf"

git init --bare $HOME/.binf
alias binf='/usr/bin/git --git-dir=$HOME/.binf --work-tree=$HOME/bin'
# binf config status.showUntrackedFiles no  ## want to track unused files

cd $HOME/bin
dotf add some-file
dotf commit -m "first import"
binf remote add origin
binf push -u origin master

Do you have a restless urge to program?

I finally found a scan advertising the Famous Programmers' School which originally appeared in the April 1982 of BYTE, page 384.

"Top down programming for the masses."
