These are all of my commandline configuration files. My main tools (as indicated by the much deeper involvement I have taken in their configuration) are zsh, vim, and tmux. In any case that it was possible, I used git submodules to include other plugins and the like. As such to get up and running with these files you should do the following:
cd ~ git clone <repo> dotfiles cd dotfiles git submodule init git submodule update cp bootstrap_starter.sh bootstrap.sh vim bootstrap.sh # fill out any relevant info here and make sure that this script is actually going to work before running it... it's a work in progress! ./bootstrap.sh
This should create a series of symlinks within your home directory (~) that refer back to the relevant files in the dotfiles repo. When I update things, or you feel so inclined, you can simple then
cd dotfiles; git pull; git update and (with a relaunch of your shell and other relevant apps) be up and running. In some cases you may also need to run the new version of the bootstrapping script as well.
