Demure's Dotfiles

This is a repo of my dot files, to help me keep them organized,
and in-sync between computers and servers.

I am in the long process of revamping all of my files, adding useful plugins,
organizing snippets, improving comments, and trying making one conf work for
all my systems (when/where possible).

NOTE: While I am currently continuing to maintain the github repo,
I have moved to gitorious. Repo link in top comments, of most comment-able confs.
With the death of gitorious, I am currently using notabug.

Aside from installing by hand, you could use GNU Stow.

cd path_to_dotfiles_clone/GNU_Stow
stow -t ~ cli     ## main programs
stow -t ~ gui     ## gui programs

NOTE: -t PATH is used as the stow 'packages' are recessed.
