How you write your code is probably different for everyone, but over the years, I have developed a system that has proved itself useful for a couple of years now and makes things super simple for organizing. Here is my home directory source tree setup with some short descriptions of each location:
/Users/addlema ├── .sh.d ├── src │ ├── git.worksite.com │ └── github.com ├── .gitconfig ├── .gitconfig-personal ├── .gitconfig-work
Overall, my pattern has been to keep work in the
git.worksite.com and my public projects in
github.com. Pesonal projects are also kept in
that is a preference of mine as I am not writing any software that is making any money. If that were the case, I would be using a separate computer and not
the company’s property to create the product.
If you are okay with MarkDown, writing software, and documentation, then I highly suggest using MkDocs. This Python based project starts with a mkdocs.yml file to describe the project, navigation, options, theme, and plugins.
Gitconfig is a interesting file when you are able to use an if statement based on the directory of a project. Below is my tree for projects that both define personal and professional configurations.
