Most of the ideas here are taken from the numerous other dotfiles repositories on GitHub.
Checkout this repo into
~/.dotfiles. Then install the dotfiles:
This rake task will not replace existing files, but it will replace existing symlinks.
The dotfiles will be symlinked, e.g.
~/.bash_profile symlinked to
<.replace github-token> then
- that bit will be replaced with the contents of
- the resulting file will be written to
~/.dotfiles/gitconfigdirectly, not symlinked
So if you want to make changes to that file, make them in
~/dotfiles/gitconfig and then run
rake install again.
Changes to symlinked files without
<.replace> bits do not require a
rake install on every change as they're symlinked.
I'm assuming MacVim (
brew install macvim) and at least Vim 7.
Vim plugins are each their own directory under vim/bundles thanks to Pathogen.
Most are included in this repository as git submodules, so you need to fetch them after cloning this repository:
git submodule update --init
