Central management of your personal configs using a git repository and symlinks.


Install the client:

Config Repo Layout

The Config Repo format is as follows:

Root Config Directory
├── files
│   ├── file_a
│   ├── ...
│   └── file_z
└── mapping.ini

The mapping.ini file maps configs from the files directory to their installation path. Currently everything lives under a default section, and all mappings are of the form CONFIG_FILE: INSTALL_PATH. An example config is shown below. It would map $REPO/files/vimrc to ~/.vimrc, and REPO/files/tmux.conf to ~/.tmux.conf:

vimrc: ~/.vimrc
tmux.conf: ~/.tmux.conf.


See the current status of the the config mapping:

tod status

Link a single config into the system:

tod link vimrc

Unlink a single config from the system:

tod unlink vimrc


  • Remove dependancy on git
  • Add multi-environment linking * specify new config sections. (ie, osx, ubuntu, etc.) * base off of defualt config?
