Configuration

Notes:

  • rsblocks will try to read the file $HOME/.config/rsblocks/rsblocks.yml, if it does not exist, it will load the defaults.
  • rsblocks will read the configuration file only on startup, which means you have to kill it and start it again if you updated your rsblocks.yml file.

mkdir ~/.config/rsblocks

cp ./rsblocks.yml ~/.config/rsblocks/rsblocks.yml
