thoughtbot dotfiles

Flow:

  • Fork this repo.
  • Clone your fork.
  • Install.
  • Track thoughtbot/dotfiles.
  • Customize in master.
  • Update.

Install

From your cloned directory:

./install.sh

This will create symlinks for all config files in your home directory. You can safely run this file multiple times to update.

Note that there is configuration for zsh so if you'd like to switch your shell from the default bash to zsh, on OS X you do:

chsh -s /bin/zsh

Track thoughtbot/dotfiles

One time:

git remote add upstream git@github.com:thoughtbot/dotfiles.git
git fetch upstream
git checkout -b upstream upstream/master

Update

Each time you want to update:

git checkout upstream
git pull
git checkout master
git rebase upstream

test

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
