Set zsh as your login shell.
chsh -s /bin/zsh
Clone onto your laptop:
git clone git://github.com/thoughtbot/dotfiles.git
cd dotfiles ./install.sh
This will create symlinks for config files in your home directory. If you include the line "DO NOT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE" anywhere in a config file, it will copy that file over instead of symlinking it, and it will leave everything above that line in your local config intact.
You can safely run
./install.sh multiple times to update.
Make your own customizations
Put your customizations at the top of files, separated by "DO NOT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE."
For example, the top of your
~/.gitconfig might look like this:
[user] name = Joe Ferris email = email@example.com # DO NOT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE [push] default = current
The top of your
~/.zlogin might look like this:
# Productivity alias todo='$EDITOR ~/.todo' # DO NOT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE # recommended by brew doctor export PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:$PATH"
