Dotfiles

This is my collection of dotfiles, preserved here for all to see and enjoy. Feel free to copy anything you see here. It would be nice if you added a comment mentioning where you got it.

My environment relies on zsh, vim, and git.

Installation

Clone the repository to a directory on your machine. I like to use ~/.dotfiles.

git clone https://github.com/erynofwales/dotfiles.git ~/.dotfiles

Run the setup script.

cd ~/.dotfiles
./setup.sh

This script will symlink all the config files in the directory to your home directory, clone a bunch of git repos, and do some other miscellaneous setup.

Enjoy.

Shell Environment

As much as possible, I tried to keep these files as system agnostic as possible. I work on lots of different systems so having the ability to bring down my core environment and customize it is very useful. Most of the environment files have three levels:

  1. The main file (e.g. .zshrc).
  2. A system specific file whose name is generated by the uname -s command. So, these files have names like .zshrc.darwin and .env.linux. The system name is exported as $SYS in the .env script.
  3. A machine specific file whose name is derived by appending .local to the main file's name (e.g. .zshrc.local).

Files 2 and 3 are sourced at the end of the main file, so any settings you add there will override those set in the main file.

Loud Noises!

In a recent change I added some extra functions to print out status messages as ZSH starts up. These are all defined in shell-functions (symlinked to ~/.shell-functions by the setup script). At any point in the setup process, you can set the variable $NOISY to a number greater than 0 to see extra status messages.
