Dealing with too many config files (28 Mar 2005)
I've finally got round to doing something about keeping all my config files in sync across the five different hosts that I ssh to regularly.
I've created a SVN repository with my config files in and symlinked the dot files to the checked out version.
.zprompt -> .aglconfig/agldotfiles/zprompt-green .zshrc -> .aglconfig/agldotfiles/zshrc .zlogin -> .aglconfig/agldotfiles/zlogin .zshenv -> .aglconfig/agldotfiles/zshenv .vimrc -> .aglconfig/agldotfiles/vimrc .gvimrc -> .aglconfig/agldotfiles/gvimrc ...
I can now keep them synced across all the boxes and I've a little tar ball in the repository as well which creates all the symlinks for me. I can borgify a new install with two commands now
I should have done this years ago.
