dot file automation

Sharpen and clean your tools to make them last longer. Hone your tools to make them more precise. The tools of a SRE start with the terminal. The terminal is honed sharp with dotfiles.

Live your life long enough in a terminal and tweaks and customizations happen. Live longer and when those tweaks are lost from a catastrophe or when you switch machines, you will be hamstrung and saddened going back to nothing.

Phase 1: maintain my dot files for tmux, bash, git and vim in a GitHub repo, and then manually symlink from the repo to my home directory.

Phase 2: automate all of the configuration setup process and the supporting software.

Complexity 1: half a dozen machines.

Complexity 2: the machines were split between Mac and linux.

Complexity 3: a couple of the linux VMs, want to be run as root. -Rage note about root- These are kali and security distributions that are not meant to be long lived, but I will be on the long enough to want a toolset.

The dot files are arranged in a shell script that will be run and then the proper bash git tmux and vim files are symlinked and used based on the os and the user that I am running as.

If there is anything that I’ve done horribly wrong with these I would really like to hear about it, these are the dot files that I have dragged around and revised for the past 5 years now or so, and we all know that looking t anything that was written even 6 months ago, we can think of way better ways of doing things.

Let’s dive right in.
