= Denzuko's Dot Files

The Various config files to establish my workspace environment. This is the fork from Ryan Bates' dotfiles, later versions will be based off my LSB and POSIX compient scripts.

== Installation

git clone git:// ~/.dotfiles cd ~/.dotfiles rake install

== Environment

This is configured to run on Linux, Mac OS X and MinGW, retrospectivelly. With minor fiddling, *BSD will work. Both z/korn and bourne again shells are supported. If you would like to switch to zsh, you can do so with the following command.

chsh -s /bin/zsh

== Features

I normally place all of my projects in ~/Workspace/Projects, so this directory can easily be accessed (and tab completed) with the "workspace" command.

workspace Projects/railsapp

There is also an "h" command which behaves similar, but acts on the home path.

h doc

Tab completion is also added to rake and cap commands:

rake db:mi cap de

To speed things up, the results are cached in local .rake_tasks~ and .cap_tasks~. It is smart enough to expire the cache automatically in most cases, but you can simply remove the files to flush the cache.

There are a few key bindings set. Many of these require option to be set as the meta key. Option-left/right arrow will move cursor by word, and control-left/right will move to beginning and end of line. Control-option-N will open a new tab with the current directory under Mac OS X Terminal.

If you're using git, you'll notice the current branch name shows up in the prompt while in a git repository.

I have also added support for a darn sweet tool known as keytool(1) and for localized manpages and bin folders.

If you're using Rails, you'll find some handy aliases (below). You can also use show_log and hide_log in script/console to show the log inline.

ss # script/server sc # script/console sg # script/generate a # autotest tlog # tail -f log/development.log rst # touch tmp/restart.txt migrate # rake db:migrate db:test:clone scaffold # script/generate nifty_scaffold

See the other aliases in ~/.zsh/aliases

If there are some shell configuration settings which you want secure or specific to one system, place it into a ~/.localrc file. This will be loaded automatically if it exists.

There are several features enabled in Ruby's irb including history and completion. Many convenience methods are added as well such as "ri" which can be used to get inline documentation in IRB. See irbrc and railsrc files for details.
