Since modified to suit my needs
git clone git:/github.com/ekrause/dotfiles/ ~/.dotfiles cd .dotfiles rake install # edit ~/.gitconfig and personalize it
I am running on Mac OS X, but it will likely work on Linux as well with minor fiddling. I primarily use zsh, but this includes some older bash files as well. If you would like to switch to zsh, you can do so with the following command.
chsh -s /bin/zsh
I normally place all of my coding projects in ~/code, so this directory can easily be accessed (and tab completed) with the "c" command.
There is also an "h" command which behaves similar, but acts on the home path.
Tab completion is also added to rake and cap commands:
rake db:mi<tab> cap de<tab>
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.
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
I've installed this enough times that it's a pain in the ass to redo, so I'm keeping all my bundles as submodules here then symlinking them out to the proper place.
ln -sf ~/code/dotfiles/TextMate/Bundles ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles
If you already have some bundles in ~/Library/Application\ Support/Textmate/ then you'll need to rm -rf them.
Let's get them ready to use:
git submodule update --init
You can also reload them:
osascript -e 'tell app "TextMate" to reload bundles'
