Yet another dotfile manager

Project description

What not to expect

A giant pile of features. That being said, this is extensible and will probably get some sort of plugin support.

Future plans

  • [ ] Plugin support

  • [ ] World domination

  • [x] Config directories

How to use the damn thing

Install it:

pip install polkadots-dotfile-manager

For development:

pip install --user -e .

Make a polkadots config directory in .config/polkadots:

Basic example:


actions = [
    SymlinkAction('aiopanel', '~/.config/aiopanel'),
    SymlinkAction('main', '~', dir_mode=True),



This configuration executes two actions. The first one symlinks the entire aiopanel directory (files are also supported of course).

The second one goes through every item in the “main” folder in the dotfile repo and symlinks them all into the destination directory. For example, the file .vimrc in main would be symlinked to ~/.vimrc.

Run it:

polkadots --config2 -v

Options used:

  • --config2 – enables the new python-based config format. -2 is an alias for this.

  • -v – verbose logging
