🏠 dotfiles for my macOS (Apple silicon) environment





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:


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: ./
  • 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.


cd && git clone && cd dotfiles && chmod +x


cd && curl -#L | tar -xzv

If you prefer, you can skip the 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 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.

tmux - tpm

tpm is a great plugin tool that has zero dependencies. Be sure to check out the plugin directory.

neovim - packer

packer manages all of my vim plugins. I'm using it with Neovim.

The Terminal

alacritty + tmux

Alacritty is my terminal emulator. I've recently migrated from zsh over to bash. Bash is more readily available on the systems I work on, so it makes sense for me to have a more portable config. Lastly, tmux is an integral tool for me in my daily work and alacritty pairs nicely with it.

Dev Fonts

Below is a list of some of my favorite dev fonts:

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.


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