@t1st3's dotfiles


This is one part of my setup. As this is not the first step of the setup, refer first to the setup steps before managing dotfiles.

See more about @t1st3-core repositories.


This project is a personal opinionated curated collection of dotfiles, adapted for my usage.

This project curates dotfiles from other projects, mostly the following ones:

Other relevant resources:

While there are many other great, comprehensive and well-documented projects about dotfiles, most of them deal in priority with macOS configuration, and GNU/Linux configuration is often considered as an aside. Not to mention that, when present, GNU/Linux configuration is often Debian/Ubuntu centric. And many of them are focused on zsh, I use bash rather than zsh.

I use many variants of GNU/Linux (mostly Fedora, Debian, Linux Mint / Ubuntu), and sometimes Windows 10 and macOS. On GNU/Linux, I mostly use KDE or Mate as desktop environments.

Working with this diversity of systems and desktops make this dotfiles repository rather different than the others, as these dotfiles are geared towards various GNU/Linux environments with bash, plus macOS and Windows as bonuses.
