Andy Henson’s Dotfiles

These are my dotfiles to set up my system the way I like it.


	git clone git:// ~/.dotfiles
	cd ~/.dotfiles
	rake install

Then edit to suit your needs.

Note that I use Mac OS X and bash


Create this script in your path somewhere (mine is in /usr/local/bin)

       echo "Usage: $(basename $0) <gem>" 1>&2
       exit 1
  [ -z "$GEM" ] && usage
  mate "$(gem environment gemdir)/gems/$GEM"

Then make it executable:

chmod +x /usr/local/bin/mategem


The growlnotify command line tool needs to be installed and the ZenTest, autotest-growl and autotest-fsevent gems.
