:wrench: .files, including ~/.macos — sensible hacker defaults for macOSProject mention: sync *some* settings between computers? | reddit.com/r/linuxquestions | 2021-12-06
it's worth recognizing the dotfiles concept is fractured so there are a hand full of project styles, I use this one which comes with a simple shell script to bootstrap the dotfiles into place https://github.com/mathiasbynens/dotfiles. Each one as it's own approach but they all accomplish the same thing.

I think it's NvChad 's theme.

Project mention: Switched channels from 21.05 to 21.11, not enough space (~27GB) to upgrade, reverted to 21.05 and now can't do a standard rebuild without running out of space. | reddit.com/r/NixOS | 2021-12-08
nix-channel --list and sudo nix-channel --list both show I'm only using 21.05 as nixos. I'm using https://github.com/nix-community/home-manager/archive/master.tar.gz as home-manager so maybe it's getting 21.11 now instead?

A glorified personal dot filesProject mention: How to create widgets | reddit.com/r/awesomewm | 2021-11-19
It's declared here. Keep in mind that you can't just copy it from the repo. It requires quite a few widgets from there.

I use Antibody for that: https://getantibody.github.io/

Save your dotfiles once, deploy them everywhereProject mention: | reddit.com/r/linuxmemes | 2021-08-24
Nice! For dotfiles and stuff, I use a helpful program called dotdrop, which allows you to create configs for different machines and all your dotfiles will just be magically symlinked to where you want them.
💾 Dot-filesProject mention: GitHub’s Engineering Team has moved to Codespaces | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-08-11
You can have it clone your dotfiles repo automatically and run a set-up script:
I also have a very bespoke dotfiles config that predates Codespaces (https://github.com/wincent/wincent), so I made a thin wrapper around it that makes it work (https://github.com/wincent/dotfiles). For people with less complicated set-ups (ie. basically the entire universe), it is pretty straightforward.
nix modules for darwinProject mention: Is there somewhere that collates all the hidden features of MacOS? | reddit.com/r/MacOS | 2021-11-16
Meanwhile usecases exist for people who wish to interact with these configurations directly, see this post from the other day, and projects like nix-darwin or many of the scripts people have written to automate configuring a fresh install.

Settings for various tools I use. (by nickjj)Project mention: New job, windows computer. I tried to use VisualStudo code, but I got back to vim anyway | reddit.com/r/vim | 2021-10-03
This is what I've been doing for years (WSL 2). It's really solid if you combine tmux with terminal Vim. My dotfiles work exactly the same on my native Linux device as WSL 2 and it's fast too.
