anselm/bash — version 0.0.1 Jan 2nd 2011



Deploys a set of bash initialization and profile files to etc/. In each profile one can query if the shell is a login shell, if it is interactive and if the profile has already been sourced by a parent shell. Profile files can be created either globally or per user, settings per user take precedence over global ones.


  • Tested with Puppet 2.6 and Bash 3/4
  • Targeted for FreeBSD, for other systems path names and example profiles can easily be modified. Default is to deploy everything to /usr/local/etc/bash.


Copy the files from /usr/local/etc/bash/skel to your user home (preserving symbolic links) and start a new shell. Then, place profile files either in /usr/local/etc/bash/profiles or ~/.bash_profiles.


There is a nice blog article ;-)
