Bowen's dotfiles

Topical

Everything's built around topic areas. If you're adding a new area to your 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 rake install.

Install tools

  • vim or sublime
  • git
  • rvm

Install dotfiles

  • git clone git://github.com/codingfoo/dotfiles ~/.dotfiles
  • cd ~/.dotfiles
  • rake install

The install rake task will symlink the appropriate files in .dotfiles to your home directory. Everything is configured and tweaked within ~/.dotfiles, though.

You can use a directory other than ~/.dotfiles, such as a dir in your dropbox folder. Your dotfiles would then be automatically synced across machines.

You might want to change bash/bashrc.symlink, which sets up a few paths that'll be different on your particular machine.
