This is my collection of dotfiles, as inspired by Zack Holman, Ryan Bates, Eric Haughee, and random posts on the web. This uses the implementation designed by Zach Holman, but is focused on bash. Merging of a fork of his work is likely in the near future, since I'd like to start using zsh and some vim.
To install, you must have rake installed on your machine. You can test for rake with the command
rake -V. RVM is highly recommended.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:crymer11/dotfiles.git ~/.dotfiles
Any files ending in ".symlink" will be appropriately linked in the home directory (files beginning with a "." will not be symlinked).
To uninstall this setup:
All the symlinks created by
rake install will be removed and any backups made during the installation will be replaced.
The .gitignore file includes a line that ignores anything in a "secrets" directory. I use this to store anything private.
