Installation Packaging status

Getting Started

  1. Install the emplace binary:

    Windows

    Scoop

    scoop install emplace
    

    NixOS

    nix-env -iA nixos.emplace
    

    Linux, MacOS, Windows

    Rust

    cargo install emplace
    

    Binary

    Download the latest binary from releases for your OS and put it somewhere in your PATH.

  2. Add the init script to your shell's config file:

    Bash

    Add the following to the end of ~/.bashrc:

    # ~/.bashrc
    
    source <(emplace init bash)
    

    Zsh

    Add the following to the end of ~/.zshrc:

    # ~/.zshrc
    
    eval "$(emplace init zsh)"
    

    Fish

    Add the following to the end of ~/.config/fish/config.fish:

    # ~/.config/fish/config.fish
    
    emplace init fish | source
    

    Nu

    Run the following in your shell:

    emplace init nu | config set_into prompt
    
  3. Change the configuration file (optional)

    When you want to use a different configuration file from the default one you can change emplace init $SHELL with emplace init $SHELL -c path/to/my/config.toml.

    This will set the EMPLACE_CONFIG="path/to/my/config.toml" environment variable. This can be overwritten with export EMPLACE_CONFIG="path/to/other/config.toml" after the init function, except in the Nu shell.

Usage

Mirroring Packages

Invoke the supported package manager of choice using the command line in a normal way and you will automatically be prompted to mirror the package, for example:

cargo install topgrade
# -- or --
rustup component add rustfmt
# -- or --
sudo apt install meld
# -- or --
pacman -S zsh
# -- or --
rua install peek
# -- or --
yay -S thunar
# -- or --
sudo snap install scrcpy
# -- or --
npm install -g release
# -- or --
pip3 install --user termtosvg
# -- or --
choco install neovim
# -- or --
scoop install curl
# -- or --
nix-env -iA nixpkgs.nixfmt
# -- or --
brew install wget
# -- or --
sudo dnf install htop
# -- or --
guix install 0ad
# -- or --
gem install aasm-diagram
# -- or --
go get colorgo
# -- or --
pkg install nginx

Synchronizing On Another Machine

Just invoke emplace install, and you will be prompted with the packages to install:

emplace install

History Analysis

You can also parse history files, this will try to extract installation commands from each line.

Bash & Zsh

emplace history $HISTFILE

Fish

emplace history ~/.local/share/fish/fish_history

Removing Synchronized Packages

Run emplace clean and select the packages you want to be cleaned, they won't be removed from your system.

Creating and modifying config files

Run emplace config --new to create a new config and configure the repository or emplace config --path to retrieve the path to the configuration file.
