My usual configs, scripts, etc for my Linux/OS X machines I work on. Downloading this directly to your home directory and running the install script will setup the following:

  • .vimrc - customized vimrc (commented) to work with Pathogen and plugins included
  • .bash_profile - a custom bash profile
  • vim plugins - vim plugins and .vim/ directory things
    • Syntastic - syntax highlighting and lint for most languages
    • NerdTree & NerdTree Tabs - for project/navigation within vim
    • Ack - For fast searching of file, buffer and other content (integrated into NerdTree with 'ms' command)
    • CtrlP - Ctrl-P like fuzzy finder popup similar to Sublime's Ctrl-P
    • Vim Airline - a pure vim powerline drop in for an awesome status line in vim
    • Solarized color scheme
    • Fugitive - git integration for vim
  • vim color themes folder for syntax highlighting


To install, run the following:

$ git clone
$ cd mysystem
$ git submodule init
$ git submodule update
$ make install

iTerm2 Color Scheme

You can install the Solarized color scheme for iTerm2 as follows:

  1. In iTerm2, open “iTerm2 > Preferences > Profiles > Colors”, and click “Load Presets…”
  2. Select the file "Solarized Dark.itermcolors.xml in the src/ of this repository

iTerm 2 settings in your profile should set the following:

  • terminal emulation - xterm-256color
  • draw bold text in bright colors - unchecked
  • treat ambiguous width chars as double width - unchecked
  • set your font to one of the patched powerline fonts


External Requirements

The only thing you'll need outside of this repository is the Ack program, which you can find at
