These are my dotfiles. They are the secret-sauce in my day-to-day workflow. In this repo, you'll find my config for my favorite command line tools:

  • zsh, my shell of choice
  • git, my source control tool of choice
  • vim (actually neovim) for text editing
  • tmux for managing sessions and terminal splits
  • And more!


After cloning this repo, running setup/setup will perform the entire setup process. You can perform isolated parts of the setup process by running individual scripts found in setup.


This repo uses rcm for management. It's pretty neat, you should check it out.

repo organization

rcm will symlink all files into place, keeping the folder structure relative to the tag root. However, our rcrc is explicitly ignoring a few things:

  • Brewfile contains our homebrew dependencies , and so doesn't need to be symlinked.
  • Anything in our setup directory is assumed to be part of the general setup process, and so will not be symlinked.

These ignore patterns are being controlled by the EXCLUDES key in my rcrc.

Additionally, I'm using the UNDOTTED key in my rcrc to make sure that Library files aren't symlinked into .Library. This means I can do things like add Xcode color schemes, or LaunchAgents into my dotfiles and have them symlinked into place properly.


This repo started life as a fork of holman's dotfiles, but is completely unrecognizable from his now.

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 the thoughtbot dotfiles, as well as from Gabe Berke-Williams, Chris Toomey, Pat Brisbin, and George Brocklehurst, among others that I'm sure I'm forgetting.
