Installation
============

.. code-block:: shell

$ git clone --recursive https://github.com/copycat-killer/awesome-copycats.git
$ mv -bv awesome-copycats/* ~/.config/awesome; rm -r awesome-copycats

Usage
=====

The modular structure allows to

* set variables
* define startup processes
* change keybindings and layouts
* set client properties

in ``rc.lua``, and

* configure widgets
* define wiboxes and screen settings

in ``theme.lua``, so that you just need to change ``chosen_theme`` variable in ``rc.lua`` to preserve your preferences *and* switch the theme, instead of having N different ``rc.lua`` full of redundancy.

Just do the following:

.. code-block:: shell

$ cd ~/.config/awesome
$ cp rc.lua.template rc.lua

Then, set the variable ``chosen_theme`` in ``rc.lua`` to your preferred theme, do your settings, and restart Awesome (``Mod4 + ctrl + r``).

To customize a theme, head over ``themes/$chosen_theme/theme.lua``.

Otherwise, if you want to be synced with upstream, modify ``theme_path`` variable in ``rc.lua`` like this:

.. code-block:: diff

-local theme_path = string.format("%s/.config/awesome/themes/%s/theme.lua", os.getenv("HOME"), chosen_theme)
+local theme_path = string.format("%s/.config/awesome/themes/%s/theme-personal.lua", os.getenv("HOME"), chosen_theme)

then, copy ``theme.lua`` to ``theme-personal.lua`` and do your customizations there.

This way, you can safely ``git pull`` anytime.
