These are my dotfiles. There are many like them, but these are mine.
Dotfiles are used to personalize a *NIX system. I use these dotfiles on Linux and Mac OS X systems.
I use the excellent
zsh for my shell, but most of the aliases, shell functions, etc in
.zshrc and elsewhere should work just fine in

The install script looks for all files and directories in the root of the repository ending in the .symlink extension. It then symlinks those files and directories into your home directory with a dot prepended and the .symlink extension removed.
Your existing dotfiles will be safe since the script will not symlink over any existing files or symlinks with the same name; you will see a warning that the file has been skipped. Seeing any of these warnings means that only some of the dotfiles will have been symlinked in, so [re]move the conflicting files and re-run the script to ensure that all dotfiles are symlinked in correctly.
I take no responsibility for any havoc the install script may wreak on your system...it works for me!

~/.bin contains git submodules for various utilities I use. These are added to
PATH as appropriate via the
