re: How to set up a fresh Ubuntu desktop using only dotfiles and bash scripts VIEW POST

Very inspirational since I have three servers I need to get set up in the next few days! This is a great reminder to try automating things!

Also, to anyone who tries something like this, remember that your dotfiles can contain sensitive information! You may need to strip information out of your files and have a private script not hosted publicly that you can use for the sensitive information. If you're feeling bold, you could try to set up a build process that grabs the secrets from another file, environment variables, Hashicorp Vault, probably all sorts of solutions I can't think of and puts them back into the files while orchestrating your scripts!

 

Symlinks on symlinks 😂 Good luck with the server setups!
