My shell setup, as well as a growing array of setup and config files for apps such as Karabiner Elements and Hammerspoon.

This bin dir lives in my Dropbox folder. I then have a symlink in my home folder so that ~/bin will actually point to ~/Dropbox/bin. You could also clone this repo to your machine's ~/bin location.

The contents of my shell config files are as follows:

# ~/.config/fish/
source ~/bin/fish/

# ~/.zshrc:
source ~/bin/dotfiles/zshrc

# ~/.bashrc:
source ~/bin/dotfiles/bashrc

# ~/.bash_profile:
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ];
    source ~/.bashrc

Finally, set up some symlinks:

# ~/.config/fish/functions is a symlink pointing at ~/bin/fish/functions
ln -s ~/bin/fish/functions ~/.config/fish

# ~/.gitconfig and ~/.gitignore_global are symlinks
ln -s ~/bin/dotfiles/.gitconfig ~/.gitconfig
ln -s ~/bin/dotfiles/.gitignore_global ~/.gitignore_global

# link the `hammerspoon` as `.hammerspoon` in my home folder
ls -s ~/bin/hammerspoon ~/.hammerspoon
# link the `karabiner` folder in the `~/.config/` folder
ln -s ~/bin/karabiner ~/.config/

This way I can keep all of my config files under source control easily.

Update Notes

Wednesday, April 5, 2017: Added karabiner config folder.

Wednesday, April 5, 2017: Added hammerspoon config folder.

Sunday, March 19, 2017: Added global .gitconfig and .gitignore_global files to this repo under dotfiles/. This requires replacing those files in my home folder with symlinks.

Sunday, February 19, 2017: Removed Oh My Fish as an experiment. I had to symlink my fish/functions/ directory from this repo to the default location for the user's custom fish functions: ln -s ~/bin/fish/functions ~/.config/fish

Wednesday, July 27, 2016: I've started playing the the Fish shell and Oh My Fish. I've added a file that is sourced by the main Fish startup file, ~/.config/fish/, which in turn sets ~/bin/omf-config as the Oh My Fish config path, OMF_CONFIG.

Wednesday, May 18, 2016: Added a zshrc file to the mix since I've been using ZSH and Oh My ZSH for some time now. I did notice that when setting the contents of ~/.zshrc to source ~/bin/dotfiles/zshrc, the src command as defined in the zsh_reload plugin no longer works.
