chadoh's dotfiles

These are dotfiles that are generic enough to use on servers and delightful enough for developers to get comfy.


You should make a ~/.extra, which will be sourced by bash. You can use this to add custom configs. Most importantly, this is where your git credentials are stored, to prevent needing to hard-code this info into the repo.

Your ~/.extra might look something like:

# PATH additions
export PATH="~/.rbenv/bin:~/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/share/npm/bin:$PATH"

# Ruby version manager
eval "$(rbenv init -)"

# Git credentials
# Not in the repository, so people don't commit as the wrong person
GIT_AUTHOR_NAME="Chad Ostrowski"
git config --global "$GIT_AUTHOR_NAME"
git config --global "$GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL"

git config --global github.user chadoh


For the vim setup to work, you first need to install Vundle by running

git clone ~/.vim/bundle/vundle

Then once you start vim, install all the plugins by running :BundleInstall.
