Obtaining ShellPAK

As of <span class="timestamp-wrapper"><span class="timestamp">&lt;2014-07-30 Wed&gt;</span></span>, ShellPAK is managed by the Fossil distributed version control system. To check out a repository:

# Check out the repository
$ mkdir shellpak
$ cd shellpak
$ fossil open ~/shellpak.fossil

Further information on Fossil can be found at this Quick Start Guide.

Alternate Repositories

ShellPAK is also available for checkout from the following locations:

Be aware that portions of the ShellPAK infrastructure relies on Fossil. Conversion to support the conventions of an alternative revision control system is an exercise left to the user.

# Install ShellPAK
$ ./

Note that during installation, ShellPAK will store dot-files (e.g., bashrc, bash_profile, etc) in ~/Backup/shell (or whatever is specified by the -b flag). These files will be restored during un-installation (via the -u flag)

$ ./ -r

# Install into another directory
$ ./ -d /path/to/directory

# Do not automatically link files during installation
$ ./ -n

# Set up go programming environment
$ ./ -g

# Set up python development environment

Previous versions of provided options for installation of Emacs packages. This is no longer required as Emacs will now automatically install necessary packages on startup.
