Project description


$ [sudo] pip install repo-config


  • store repos config in dotfiles

path/to/repo/.config/ - repo config

git@host:owner/repo.git - git remote, required for save/load

~/.config/repo-config/owner/repo/ - dotfiles


$ echo "/.config" >> ~/.gitignore

optional. environment variables:

$ export REPO_CONFIG_HOME=~/.config/repo-config     # $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/repo-config by default
$ export REPO_CONFIG_DIR=.config                    # .config by default

Scripts usage
