🏠 dotfiles for my macOS environment

dotfiles

Usage

About

This is my development environment that I use everyday on my MacBook Pro.

If you have any improvements or suggestions, please feel free to submit it here or contact me

I have created a minimal dotfile repo for to help new users get started on their own dotfile journey. You can check out the project here: https://github.com/jonleopard/dotfile-starter.

Installation

Disclaimer: If you decide to use these dotfiles, proceed at your own risk!

At the moment, this will only work in macOS.

  1. Download repo
  • via git
  • via curl
  1. Run scripts <--Currently working on these!
  • Automatic: ./install.sh
  • Manually: stow [folder]
  1. Done!

Download and Stage Files

If you are on a new machine, then you might need to install git. You can also use curl. Whatever method you chose, make sure the files get put in your $HOME directory. If you aren't sure where that is, run echo $HOME.

git

cd && git clone https://github.com/jonleopard/dotfiles.git && cd dotfiles && chmod +x install.sh

cURL

cd && curl -#L https://github.com/jonleopard/dotfiles/tarball/master | tar -xzv

If you prefer, you can skip the install.sh script and run stow manually. Just tell stow which dotfiles you want to symlink:

stow [example]

Mangement Tools

dotfiles - gnu stow

There are so many flavors when it comes to dotfile management. I wanted something lightweight and that could run in any *nix environment with little to no dependencies.

All my dotfiles are managed with the extremely light weight GNU Stow. Basically, stow creates & manages symlinks to files that are located in the home directory. This allows me to keep everything in an organized folder called 'dotfiles'. If you are interested in learning more about stow, I wrote a brief post about it here

macOS - Homebrew

Homebrew and Macports are pretty much the only mainstream options here. I went with Homebrew. I'm using Homebrew-Cask which will go out and install all of the applications that I tell it to. mas will install all of your Mac App Store apps. All of this is bundled in a list called a Brewfile.

node - n

n allows me to switch between different node versions on the fly. I've installed n via n-install.

zsh - antibody

antibody has been my favorite zsh plugin mananger for a couple years now. The author has a great post on shell performance which I highly recommend if you are interested in speeding up your shell spawn times. It's written in go, so make sure you have go installed on your system.

tmux - tpm

tpm (which stands for tmux plugin manager) is a great little that has zero dependencies. Be sure to check out the plugin directory.

neovim - vim plug

vim-plug manages all of my vim plugins. It pairs nicely with Neovim.

The Terminal

alacritty + zsh

As you could have guessed by now, I am using zsh instead of bash as my unix shell. Alacritty is my terminal emulator and Pure Prompt is the shell prompt.

Dev Fonts

Below is a list of some of my favourite dev fonts that go great in your terminal, IDE, Text Editor, etc...

If you need a Powerline font, a list of those can be found here: Powerline Fonts. You could also check out the Nerd Fonts repo for a list of patched fonts and install them via homebrew.

Wallpapers

I've been working a collection of my favorite wallpapers over the years. If you are interested, you can grab the bundle here.
