    My custom settings for various desktops (by kbknapp)

    Like many people, I keep all of my configuration files stored in a public dotfiles repository on GitHub. It's a bit of a mess as I only use particular parts on particular machines. So it's not meant to be publicly read or analyzed. However, my point is that the configuration files are stored in a central location where I can simply clone the repository down to my machine, symlink the files or directories I care about and want to use and go about my day.

    Workstation baseline tool (by kbknapp)

    Aside: I actually have a baseline set of scripts that do all the copying/symlinking for me based on a TUI dialog I fill out. To be clear, this is in no way meant to be publicly consumed as many of the steps are hard-coded for my specific machines.

    ☄🌌️ The minimal, blazing-fast, and infinitely customizable prompt for any shell!

    The demo site has a great GIF showing all the features and the why. As well as how to configure all the various items. I have a customized prompt, but the default is perfectly acceptable as well.
