dot-files

This is my personal .dot-files repository, where all my custom dotfiles and installation scripts go.

To use it, clone the repo directly into the home directory.

Usage

  1. Download/clone this repository
  2. Have nix installed and flakes enabled
  3. Use nix develop to enter a shell with all requirements
  4. Use dot-* commands to build, apply, or update the contained configurations

How to get around the git conflict

To download and build this repository, you need git (because nix flakes depends on it).

However, activating a home-manager configuration including git conflicts with a possible git installed via nix-env -iA nixos.git.

To solve this, you need to split building and activating the home-manager configuration into two steps, uninstalling the nix-env git in-between:

nix-env -iA git # in case you haven't already
git clone ... # clone this repository using git
nix --extra-experimental-features "nix-command flakes" develop # enter a nix shell (enabling required experimental nix features)
dot-build-home # build the home-manager configuration
nix-env -e git-minimal # remove the nix-env git again
./result/activate # activate the home-manager installation that includes git

WIP Note

The .config and old-nix-structure folders are left-over from the old way I managed my dotfiles, which assumed this directory to be cloned into ~ directly.

I am slowly working through everything, starting by moving everything inside .config into modules/home-manager/. That is the last thing required before ~ does not have to be a home directory anymore.

Afterwards, everything inside old-nix-structure needs to be moved into modules/ and collections/, as well as some other folders, most likely.
