A man's home is his castle. Never leave your dotfiles behind.
Clone or download


$HOME sweet ~/

Common shell stuff, dotfiles and little utilities.

All the dotfiles in ~/$HOME are symbolic links with the corresponding file to this repository. Therefore, I can now modify the files directly in this repository and the changes will be applied to the system.

GitHub <-> dotfiles <- ~/$HOME


Clone the repository and run the bootstrap command:

git clone git@github.com:arturoherrero/dotfiles.git
sh bootstrap

Update the dotfiles

To update the dotfiles, I can pull the latest change from the repository or I can just use a shell function anywhere:


Custom configuration

Using system/zcustom.sh file, I can add any custom configuration that is not going to be persisted in the repository.
