Project description

Git my dotfiles!

Version on pypi Tested with Github Actions Python versions tested (link to github project)


This is a preview project, not ready for use yet, most of the implementation is not there yet

gdot is a python CLI that allows to easily roam one’s dotfile configs (such as ~/.bashrc and ~/.config/...) between multiple machines.

Getting started:

# On first login, associate your local files to a remote git repo
gdot attach github:myuserid

# Pull changes from your remote git store any time
gdot pull

# Add some files to track
gdot add ~/.bashrc ~/.config/htop/

# When you made some local changes, push them to your git store
gdot push

# Optionally, you can specify a commit message
gdot push -m "Changed qtile settings"

# See what's changed since you last push/pull-ed
gdot status
gdot diff


Install it with pickley:

pickley install gdot            # Grab the latest
pickley install gdot==1.0.0     # Or pin to a specific version

Or in a venv:

python3 -mvenv ~/.local/venvs/gdot
~/.local/venvs/gdot/bin/pip install gdot

# Then put a symlink to a folder that is in your PATH:
ln -s ~/.local/venvs/gdot/bin/gdot ~/.local/bin/gdot

# Or simply alias it:
alias gdot=~/.local/venvs/gdot/bin/gdot

# You can upgrade it like so:
~/.local/venvs/gdot/bin/pip install -U gdot

# Or pin to a specific version:
~/.local/venvs/gdot/bin/pip install -U gdot==1.0.0
