This repo and these dotfiles are based on a fork of holman/dotfiles.
Why this repo
The main difference with the original repo is that I rely on oh-my-zsh for my zsh configuration. Consequently, I cleaned a lot of nice features that were included in the original repo.
I like the idea of having my own configuration tools (dotfiles) saved on github for sharing and easy reuse but, most most of all, I like the idea of having a configuration as light as possible.
This is the reason I try to use the tool I installed with their default configuration.

forked dotfiles — say, "Java" — you can simply add a
java directory and put
files in there. Anything with an extension of
.zsh will get automatically
included into your shell. Anything with an extension of
.symlink will get
symlinked without extension into
$HOME when you run
A lot of stuff. Check the original repo if you want even more of them. Fork it, remove what you don't use, and build on what you do use.
There's a few special files in the hierarchy.
- bin/: Anything in
bin/will get added to your
$PATHand be made available everywhere.
- topic/*.zsh: Any files ending in
.zshget loaded into your environment.
- topic/*.symlink: Any files ending in
*.symlinkget symlinked into your
$HOME. This is so you can keep all of those versioned in your dotfiles but still keep those autoloaded files in your home directory. These get symlinked in when you run
