Backup your packages, apps, and configurations directly to git in the form of profiles. Set up any new (virtual) machine using a profile in one line. Share profiles between multiple machines.

            Avoid read file being the alternate buffer in Vim
            Asked 2022-Mar-24 at 11:24

            I am having an issue with Vim, NeoVim in this case if it makes a difference. I have an autocmd that includes a boilerplate when creating a file of a certain type, a Vue file in this case. Here is the code:

            From :help :read, emphasis mine:

            If a file name is given with ":r", it becomes the alternate file. This can be used, for example, when you want to edit that file instead: ":e! #". This can be switched off by removing the 'a' flag from the 'cpoptions' option.

            All uses of await that can reject must be handled in some way. They must either be surrounded by a try/catch or the caller of the async function must handle the rejection.

            In this case, app.get() does not pay any attention to a returned/rejected promise from the async callback so you have to catch rejections locally. So, in this code:

            You shouldn't need to modify your PATH manually when using nvim-lsp-installer. The minimal setup recommends the following (there's more in the README):



            How to insert the configuration.nix file inside my dot files?
            Asked 2021-Dec-20 at 02:08

            I am creating my dot files following this tutorial. It successfully works for emacs.d.

            Since I am using NixOS, I tried doing exactly the same steps with symlink creation for the configuration.nix file. Thus, I did:

            1 - On terminal:



            Answered 2021-Dec-20 at 02:08

            Your Step 2 seems to have cause the issue here: The symlink should be called configuration.nix not configuration.nix~ as you have noticed.

            You could fix this by running mv configuration.nix~ configuration.nix in the /etc/nixos folder which would rename configuration.nix~ to the correct configuration.nix.



            How to properly setup Fish and version the configuration?
            Asked 2021-Nov-19 at 15:22

            I'm switching to fish from zsh and I'm struggling to find the correct way to it setup for my taste. Also adding that I want to add it to my dotfiles repository. Should I version the whole ~/.config/fish folder?

            Where should I put my environment variables? Should I just add them to the fish_variables config file? I was thinking on sourcing a file ~/ for the ones I don't want to version. Is this a good idea?

            I use exa and ripgrep and I like to override grep and ls with them. Can I just set aliases for them overriding like I would with zsh/bash?

            I want to use it inside neovim as well and I'm using the vi keybindings. Will this conflict with neovim? If so is there a way to make the vi keybindings active only outside of neovim?

            It seems most of the stuff I use is provided by vanilla fish without plugins (which I'm quite happy about). Is there any tips or must have plugins I should install?



            Answered 2021-Nov-19 at 15:22

            I have my ~/.config/fish in git, works well. I share my config over several machines, and to have host-specific settings and functions, I do this:

            Answered 2021-Nov-09 at 20:10

            In general it's a bad idea to try to construct a complex shell command using make functions inside a recipe. You should simply use shell constructs: for example use the shell for loop, not the make foreach loop.

            Let's see what your recipe does:

            Neovim gkeep plugin
            Asked 2021-Oct-19 at 09:05

            I installed gkeep plugin for Neovim ( and didn't like it. I removed it from my plugins (I use vim-plug) and run :PlugClean after that. But now I can't open neovim without error mentioning that gkeep plugin. How to fix this?



            Answered 2021-Oct-19 at 09:05

            It seems that you haven't removed the configuration related to gkeep.nvim. Try to remove all settings related to gkeep.nvim.

            Also, when you open neovim, run the command :UpdateRemotePlugins. It should solve your issue.

            To simplify instructions, the paths provided in this README are for macOS scripts. However, these all have their counterparts for other OSs. You just need to replace the macos part with linux or windows, or unix part with windows. Sometimes additional minor changes to the path are required as well but it should all be clear and intuitive.
