All Hail Dotfiles
These are my UNIX-y configuration files, known colloquially as "dotfiles" because most of them begin with a period (a "dot"). These configurations are used in OS X, so some may not be applicable or may not work properly at all in other environments. Most should work in flavors of Linux, though.
Important note: These are my personal configuration files, which are in a constant state of change as I develop my environment across several systems. I can't guarantee that these configurations will work for you, at all, so if you encounter problems with them, you're pretty much on your own.
I have also provided a handy bash script called
linkall that will handle the
arduous process of symlinking each of these configurations into your home
directory. Why would I do this? So that these files can live in their own
directory as an isolated git repository and also function as configuration files
in your home directory at the same time. Simply run
linkall and you're done.
Usage is straightforward.
$ git clone https://github.com/aaronbieber/dotfiles.git ~/dotfiles $ ~/dotfiles/linkall
.bashrc file is now capable of environments. To take advantage of
environment partitions, export the
MY_LOCATION environment variable from your
.bash_profile and then source the
.bashrc file, like so:
#!/bin/bash export MY_LOCATION=home if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then source ~/.bashrc fi
