💡 How I am managing the dotfiles

Using a bare repository. The dotfiles can reside where they are. No symlinks needed.

Initial setup

Create a bare repository to store the history.

git init --bare $HOME/dotfiles

Create an alias in zshrc, tell Git where the history and the working tree (snapshot) live.

alias cfg='git --git-dir=$HOME/dotfiles/ --work-tree=$HOME'

Tell Git not to show all the untracked files, otherwise all files under $HOME will be shown when running git status.

cfg config status.showUntrackedFiles no

Set up the remote repository for syncing

cfg remote add origin https://github.com/xxx/dotfiles.git

Done! Now we can manage our dotfiles.

cfg status
cfg add ~/.config/zsh
cfg commit -m "zsh config"
cfg push origin master

Clone to another machine

Clone the dotfiles into a bare repository.

git clone --bare https://github.com/xxx/dotfiles.git $HOME/dotfiles

Checkout the actual content from the bare repository to $HOME.

git --git-dir=$HOME/dotfiles/ --work-tree=$HOME checkout

Done!

Notes

If using vim-fugitive in Neovim, to make it work with this bare repo correctly, we should modify ~/dotfiles/config as below

...

[core]
  bare = false
  worktree = /Users/rockyzhang/

...
