👩❤️💋👩 Synchronize installed packages on multiple machinesProject mention: Ask HN: How do you manage dotfiles and provision machines? | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-05-26
Probably true but as an aging and burned out dev I really hoped that there would be some ready and baked solutions by mid-2023, you know.
It's actually quite the glaring hole in dev tooling. Everyone formulating their own cloud or GIT synced adhoc scripts is a huge waste of energy IMO!
Guess I'll have to start allocating time and check out Ansible, Chef and Puppet (I heard they can do OS- and distro-agnostic package management which sounds promising). Or, since I have no plans to use Windows for anything except gaming ever again and will stick to Macs and Linux machines, then I'll just carefully compose a few bash/zsh scripts with some package manager shims and command/arguments translation and nail that and use it to my grave.
Still, I really expected dev tooling to be better. It's weird how each one of us has to invent their own package syncing manager.
The only tool I was able to find is https://github.com/tversteeg/emplace -- but I am still fighting with it and I can't even make it use config file on a custom location, and it does seem semi-defunct. Will research it a bit, still have hope it'll work but likely not. Oh well.
