Swy7ch' personnal dotfiles

Hello, world! This is my dotfiles directory. Feel free to use it at your convenience :)

I'm David. I'm a Computer Science student from France, and a huge fan of Linux, especially Arch and Gentoo. I also like making things simple and neat, and this is the sole purpose of this directory: keeping my needed files in a safe place, so that I can reinstall Gentoo easily without much tinkering.

Everything common to my machines is in the dev branch. The venus branch provides the config for my Gentoo-based desktop, which has finally reached a stable state. The mercury branch provides the config for my Gentoo-based laptop. Both are up-to-date as I use them as my daily drivers.

Everything is bleeding edge.


Clone the repo :

$ git clone --bare --recurse-submodules <repo_url> ~/.dotfiles.git

then after setting an alias like

$ alias dotfiles='/usr/bin/git --git-dir=$HOME/.dotfiles.git/ --work-tree=$HOME'

just run

$ dotfiles checkout

Note: the repo already provides an alias file (~/.config/aliasrc) which sets this alias up. For this alias to work, you need to source ~/.config/zsh/.zprofile before.


Contains the files that I haven't been able to put in ~/.config.

~/.config/root/ [deprecated]

Where I keep the files I have to copy into the / folder. It is sensible so it is not called in a setup script.


My personnal scripts that I wrote (or stole) to make things easier. Some of them are used by programs I use, like my WM for instance.

Window manager and terminal emulator

I currently use suckless' programs, i.e. dmenu (binary launcher), dwm (window manager) and st (terminal emulator), so my files are set accordingly. My statusbar is set through dwmblocks.

All my forks are available on this account!


Since commit 93440b9, those forks are provided as submodules, provided in ~/.local/src. To retrieve them, run

$ git submodule update --init
