My dotfiles, have a look, try them, give me hints for improvement...


cd ~ && git clone git://

Manual Install

Symlink the files you want to use e.g.

cd ~ && ln -s dotfiles/rspec .rspec

Automatic install

curl -L | bash -s master

it runs install.rb which will:

  • make a backup of all the files it changes to ~/dotfiles_backup_TIMESTAMP
  • replaces .file through links to dotfiles/file for .bashrc .gitignore .irbrc .rspec
  • replace content of .gitconfig, except for [github] and [user] section

Secret stuff you do not want to share

If you add a folder named 'secret' to dotfiles it will also symlink stuff from there. e.g. ln -s /home/micha/Dropbox/Private/dotfiles dotfiles/secret
