Install dot files and packages, including a base mode with sensible defaults to run on most computers running Debian based distros or macOS.
Get your daily driver just the way you like it, from dot files installation, to package installation, to other little features you didn't know you needed,
onboardme intends to save you time with initializing and upgrading your environment.
Keep your Dot Files Up To Date Across multiple systems
onboardme can manage your dot files using a git by turning your home directory into a repo.
We provide default dot files, so you don't have to manage them
- The default dot files are open source, and the maintainers use these themselves
- They cover a lot of common apps/tools you probably want anyway
- They have consistent colorschemes accross different CLI/TUI programs 😃
- They set all the helpful BASH aliases you could need (zsh support coming soon)
We install and upgrade libraries and apps using common package managers.
onboardme provides a currated list of default packages
- checkout the default packages
pip(and you can add your own 😄)
- group together packages for different kinds of environments
- onboardme provides default package groups:
- default (no desktop GUI apps installed by default, always installed)
- macOS (default apps for macOS only apps, always installed on macOS)
- gui (default GUI apps for Linux desktops, optionally installed)
- devops (devops related tooling, optionally installed)
- onboardme provides default package groups:
NeoVim Plugin Installtion and Updates
onboardme keeps your neovim plugins installed and up to date with lazy.nvim under the hood.
Why no vim though?
If you haven't already made the switch from Vim to NeoVim, you can try out NeoVim today with
onboardme :D We used to support both neovim and vim, but these days none of the primary developers of this repo use pure vim anymore, so we can't ensure it's up to standards. All of your knowledge from vim is still helpful in neovim though, and we highly recommend switching as neovim has a lot more features and a very active plugin community :) NeoVim maintains a guide on how to switch from vim here.
yaml config files
- XDG Base Directory Spec use for config files
Other useful (but optional) configurations
- Enable touchID for sudo on macOS
- Add your user to the docker group
- Install nerdfonts (defaults to Hack and Symbols Only)
- Set capslock to control (🚧 in the works)
Examples of the terminal after
Powerline and ls
Powerline with git
Image and colors
Python virtual env in powerline and cat
The quickest way to get started on a fresh macOS or distrubtion of Debian (including Ubuntu) is:
# this will download setup.sh to your current directory and run it /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jessebot/onboardme/main/setup.sh)" # this will display the help text for the onboardme cli onboardme --help
If you've already got brew and Python3.11 on your machine, you can just do:
# should also work with pipx, if you'd like to use that instead pip install --user onboardme
You can read more in depth at the Getting Started Docs 💙! There's also more [docs] on basically every program that onboardme touches.
If you're on python 3.11, you should be able to do:
pip3.11 install --upgrade onboardme
onboardme has lots of CLI options, but you can also use config files. You have to create these files for the time being.
Config files are in
~/.config/onboardme/ (will use
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME, if defined). Examples below:
log: # Full path to a file you'd like to log to. Creates file if it doesn't exist file: "" # what level of logs to output (DEBUG, INFO, WARN, ERROR) level: "INFO" # steps refer to a specific function in the list of functions we run steps: # these are mac specific steps Darwin: # clones dot files into home dir/git fetches updates for dot files - dot_files # install packages - packages # adds nerdfonts - font_setup # runs :Lazy sync to install all your plugins - neovim_setup # sets up touchID for sudo - sudo_setup # these are linux specific steps Linux: - dot_files - packages - font_setup - neovim_setup # add your user to the docker group - group_setup dot_files: # personal git repo URL for your dot files, defaults to jessebot/dot_files git_url: "https://github.com/jessebot/dot_files.git" # the branch to use for the git repo above, defaults to main git_branch: "main" # !CAREFUL: runs a `git reset --hard`, which will overwite/delete local files in ~ that # conflict with the above defined git repo url and branch.
