Project Description

This is my personal take on a dotfile-manager.


  • Pile of symlinks approach
  • Declarative configuration
  • Composable
  • Versioning not baked in
  • Infinitely hackable

Prior Art (or why I decided to roll my own)

written in shell (yuck) and has git baked in
written in perl (yuck) and didn’t grok how it worked
has weird conventions and strange config


Given the yaml config config.yadoma in the directory config/public:

      src: .rc_with_src
      dest: .rc_with_src_dest
      src: .rc_with_out_dest
    - .plainrc

And, given the following files of the directory:



$ yadoma config/public

Will create the following symlinks in the users $HOME for the program example-prog:
