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. 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 Arch easily without much tinkering.


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.

Programs whose config files can be found in ~/.config/

  • dunst
  • git
  • htop
  • mpd
  • ncmpcpp
  • neovim v0.5+
  • neomutt
  • pacman (hooks only)
  • paru
  • redshift
  • sxhkd
  • zathura
  • zsh
  • old
    • fish-shell
    • i3-gaps
    • neofetch
    • neovim v0.4.4
    • polybar
    • termite
    • ranger
    • vim


Where I keep the files I have to copy into the / folder. It is not called in arch_setup as it is quite sensible.


My personnal scripts that I use 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 init
$ git module update
