Dotfiles are installed by running one of the following commands in your terminal, just copy one of the following commands and execute in the terminal:

via curl

bash -c "$(curl -fsSL"

via wget

bash -c "$(wget -O -)"

Tell Git who you are using these commands:

git config -f ~/.gitlocal ""
git config -f ~/.gitlocal "Name Lastname"


Use single command to get latest updates:


This command will update dotfiles, their dependencies, brew or apt-get packages, global npm dependencies, gems, apm plugins.

Under the hood

Note: You may put your custom settings into ~/.zshlocal.
