Download

You can simply download the yadm script and put it into your $PATH. Something like this:

curl -fLo /usr/local/bin/yadm https://github.com/TheLocehiliosan/yadm/raw/master/yadm && chmod a+x /usr/local/bin/yadm

Of course, you can change the file paths above to be appropriate for your $PATH and situation.

Clone

You might wish to clone the yadm project and symlink yadm into your $PATH.

git clone https://github.com/TheLocehiliosan/yadm.git ~/.yadm-project
ln -s ~/.yadm-project/yadm ~/bin/yadm

Now you can pull the latest updates to yadm using Git. Again, adjust the file paths above to be appropriate for your $PATH and situation.

Submodule

If you are comfortable with how Git submodules work, another option is to add the yadm project as a submodule and symlink yadm into your $PATH.

cd ~
yadm submodule add https://github.com/TheLocehiliosan/yadm.git .yadm-project
yadm submodule update --init --recursive
ln -s ~/.yadm-project/yadm ~/bin/yadm
yadm add .yadm-project .gitmodules bin/yadm
yadm commit

When using submodules, you need to initialize them each time you do a fresh clone of your dotfiles.

yadm submodule update --init --recursive

Updating to a newer version of yadm would use commands similar to this.

cd ~/.yadm-project
git pull
yadm add ~/.yadm-project
yadm commit

Again, adjust the file paths above to be appropriate for your $PATH and situation.

You can find more information about Git submodules by reading the git-submodule man page.
