This repo is a skeleton/template repo for tracking dotfiles. It contains a utility bootstrap to help with managing and updating your dotfiles.

This is based on the system created by jeffaco

This repo has several directories to support multiple platforms

Directory Purpose
nix Linux/UNIX platforms (or compatible)
windows Windows platform
mac Mac platform

The Mac platorm currently shares the bootstrap script with the *nix platforms. Winows does not currently have a bootstrap.

Using this repo

First, fork this repo into your github account.

Then, clone to you target host.

Then, add your dotfiles:

$ git clone
$ cd dotfiles
$  # edit files
$  # edit files
$  # When satisfied with your files:
$ nix/
$ git push origin master

Finally, to install your dotfiles onto a new system:

$ cd $HOME
$ git clone
$ dotfiles/nix/


The bootstrap utility has been tested to work properly on Linux, IBM AIX, HP-UX, Sun Solaris, and Mac OS/X.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
