If you really have no idea at all on what are dot files you can have a look at Zack's post on the subject.
git clone git://github.com/bcharbonnier/dotfiles ~/.dotfiles cd ~/.dotfiles rake install
Executing this task will basically symlink all different sort of configuration files from
.dotfiles to your
My default interpreter is
zsh. Accordingly to that, the main file you might want and will have to tweak is
zsh/zshrc.symlink. Some private paths are set up in here.
To have syntax highlighting with grc you have to install few stuff
brew install xy coreutils grc
The hierarchy in the project include some special files
- bin/: Anything put inside
bin/will get added to your
$PATHso you could use it anywhere.
- **/*.zsh: Any
.zshfiles will get loaded to your environment.
- **/*.symlink: Any files ending with
.symlinkextension will get symlinked to your
$HOMEdirectory. These get symlinked when running
For more information about how to customize or how to add new stuff, please refer to Zach's documentation where everything is much better described.
