Welcome to my new-new-new dotfiles repository!
My last attempt to manage them was with org-mode, a terrific Emacs lisp
program. It's really cool, but I never wanted to invest time in
learning it properly, so here we are. I guess I could cite Ken Thompson
> I can't understand something presented to me that's very complex.
but it wouldn't be completely true. I understand and use complex stuff,
but for some I just don't want to put the effort in. org-mode falls
into this category.
This is me reinventing a lightweight literate-programming style (mostly
in AWK) and use it to manage my dotfiles, as well as for exporting them
for the Geminispace and the WWW.
To start using it:
$ ./gen # generates Makefile.local
$ make install # installs the dotfiles
$ make publish # publishes for gemini and www
$ make serve-www # serve the www site locally
$ make serve-gem # serve the gemini site locally
There are quite a few scripts that I think can be useful to other
* unpar: gathers paragraphs and simple list that spans multiple lines
into a single line; in other words it converts "markdown"-style
paragraphs and lists to text/gemini.
* gc: converts lines indented with tabs into markdown/gemtext style
fenced code blocks.
* gem2html: perl script that converts text/gemini to HTML with care.
