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.
- Download/clone this repository
- Have nix installed and flakes enabled
nix developto enter a shell with all requirements
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
old-nix-structure folders are left-over from the old way I managed my dotfiles, which assumed this directory to be cloned into
I am slowly working through everything, starting by moving everything inside
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
collections/, as well as some other folders, most likely.
