That's part of the rub, going into a new position I'm not totally sure what that looks like quite yet, and yeah I do have some dotfiles already set up I'm going to clone back down and set up as hyperlinks.


Ah, gotcha. Makes sense. I install a bunch of stuff via a Brewfile also, which may be useful.

I see that - and I may use some of it, but I'm probably going to lean on Ansible to do most of my heavy lifting.


Out of curiosity, why? I've used ansible a little bit, but not much.

Comfort level, flexibility, and centralized config-as-code in my case. The goal being to run 1 Ansible playbook (after a few prerequisites are installed, likely via shell script) to fully configure my machine. Also consider it a partial personal challenge. I think it can be done, and I'd like to try.

Sounds cool. Good luck!
