Dan Pickett's dotfiles

personal configurations for zsh, vim, and git related items


  • backup your dotfiles (homesick will ask you if you want to overwrite files on symlink)
  • install ohmyzsh
  • execute the following:
  #> gem install homesick
  #> homesick clone dpickett/dotfiles
  #> homesick symlink dpickett/dotfiles

To update vim bundles with pathogen once you've symlinked:

  #> cd ~/.homesick/repos/dpickett/dotfiles/.vim && ./update_bundles

Read through the update_bundles script (it's ruby)- it will initialize your plugins - if you want to add or remove plugins, fork away!
