Configuration file manager

Project Description

dotty is a simple tool to aid with configuration file management.

dotty lets you keep all your personal dotfiles for all your computers in a single directory (optionally, but highly-advantageously, under version control). You can define different configurations for your different computers using “roles”, which are specific sets of dotfiles. Roles support inheritance.

Running dotty takes a single required argument; the name of the role you want to use. Dotty will them symlink the dotfiles for that role to their proper places on your machine.

This means that setting up a new computer just means cloning your dotfiles repository to your home directory and running dotty, which will take care of the rest for you.
