Gabriel Berke-Williams' dotfiles for Zsh, ruby, git, and more.

They assume you're using OSX.

$ git clone ~/.dotfiles
$ cd ~/.dotfiles
$ ./

It will install rcm and use that to safely symlink the dotfiles, prompting you if a file already exists (like if you already have ~/.zshrc).


rcm will symlink all files into place, keeping the folder structure relative to the tag root. However, non-configuration files and folders like system/, Brewfile,, etc will not be linked because they are in the EXCLUDES section of the rcrc file.


rcm has the concept of tags: items under tag-git/ are in the git tag, and so on. I'm using it for organization, so that if someone starts using Haskell I can point them at all of my Haskell configuration across Vim/Zsh/GHCi, all in one place.


All of the Zsh configuration is in zshrc.


Many scripts and configurations have been inspired by or outright stolen from my colleagues at thoughtbot. Of special note, I've stolen many things from Chris Toomey and Gordon Fontenot, among others that I'm sure I'm forgetting.
