Dot Files

These are config files to set up a system the way I like it.

Installation

git clone git://github.com/lexmag/dotfiles ~/.dotfiles
cd ~/.dotfiles
rake install

Environment

I am running on Mac OS X, but it will likely work on Linux as well with minor fiddling. I primarily use zsh. To switch to zsh, you can do so with the following command:

chsh -s /bin/zsh

Features

I normally place all of my coding projects in ~/Code, so this directory can easily be accessed (and tab completed) with the c command:

c dotfi<tab>

There is also an h command which behaves similarly, but acts on the home path:

h Down<tab>

Also there is an s command which is shortcut for subl. Just s without operand behaves same as subl ..

Tab completion is also added to mix command:

mix te<tab>

To speed things up, the results are cached in local .mix_tasks~ file. It is smart enough to expire the cache automatically in most cases, but you can simply remove the file to flush the cache.

There are a few key bindings set. Many of these require option to be set as the meta key. Option-left/right arrow will move cursor by word, and control-left/right will move it to beginning/end of line. A new tab will open with the current directory under Mac OS X Terminal.

If you're using git, you'll notice the current branch name shows up in the prompt while in a git repository.

There are also several git aliases included. See the other aliases in ~/.zsh/aliases

If there are some shell configuration settings which you want secure or specific to one system, place it into ~/.localrc file. This will be loaded automatically if it exists.
