mathias/dotfiles

Everyone needs a dotfiles repo these days.

My vim config is heavily inspired by the structure of @begriff's vim config but I don't use leader commands, so I used the basic structure while adding my own config.

This now uses stow to help manage dotfiles in $HOME.

Organization

bash/

Inside bash/ is a my bash config scripts:

  • .bash_profile is usually loaded first for most interactive shells.
  • .bashrc is initially loaded, and loads other config files.
  • .bashrc.alias is a set of aliases that I care about.
  • .bashrc.local is for local system config, and is omitted.
  • .bashrc.prompt exists purely to set up the bash prompt.
  • .bashrc.completion is loaded last and sets up all bash completion features.

emacs/

Config in the .emacs file.

I launch emacs with a convenient little script called e. Install it with:

ln -s $PWD/emacs/e ~/bin/e
chmod +x ~/bin/e

The script checks if there is an emacs server running. If there isn't, it starts one up. Then it connects an emacsclient to it with the requested file.

Tip: Update emacs packages by blowing them away

Frequently packages in emacs will get out of date or will not be able to be updated from MELPA anymore because the installed version is no longer available. In this case, it should be safe to blow away the directories in ~/.emacs.d/elpa. The only thing I haven't confirmed is that doing this does not lose keyfreq's history.

git/

The important file in git/ is the .gitconfig-aliases file which prepares some of my git aliases.

To have it be sourced, add this to ~/.gitconfig:

[include]
	path = ~/.gitconfig-aliases

After running stow git in this directory. (Likely, ~/.dotfiles) Local setup of git user, email, etc., is likely done by initial setup.

tmux/

Contains a .tmux.conf file that sets up tmux. Very basic config at this point.

vim/

Inside vim/ you'll find files to set up vim, naturally:

  • .vimrc is the main vim config file. I am using Vundle, so all of the vim bundles that I depend on are listed in the 'Vundle' section in .vimrc.
  • .vimrc.local is for local vim config and is omitted.
  • If you are not running the whole install.sh script, after stowing the vim config into place, check out the commands to install vim-plug and plugins with it in the install.sh script.

Other software:

MacOS

Linux laptop

  • install/upgrade: vim, emacs, git, tmux, htop, s-tui, tlp
  • Firefox
  • grasp

To Use

I don't suggest you go using these files without understanding what they do. But if you must, the files get symlinked into position in your home directory from this directory. Their filenames should remain the same. I highly suggest that if you're going to use pieces of this, that you fork this repo into your own GitHub account, at the very least. Then remove what you don't want.

Bugs

I can't guarantee this will work for you. These are my own config files and highly personalized. As noted below in the license, there is no warranty.
