Installation of configs
This project (currently) uses Ruby's Rakefile system, so
gem install rake. The tasks can be listed with
bundle exec rake -T, but these consist of
rake deploy # Synchronises the repositories rake install[install_osx] # Links the respective files into the correct places rake uninstall[uninstall_osx] # Removes any soft-links created by this script
Configurations are installed with soft links. Each directory contained within this one is linked to the home directory but a '.' is prepended to hide it, e.g. zsh/zshrc gets linked to ~/.zshrc.
Anyway with these repos the installation method is not the most key thing; the configurations themselves are more interesting. The main repos (which receive the most attention) are zsh and vim, in fact the vim subdir changes almost daily.
Vim plugins are managed by neobundle, and zsh files are split up by what they handle.
If you're running OSX the osx directory contains some nice defaults which I use. To install them add an argument to the
install task. The argument could be anything; I haven't worked out how to add arguments properly yet.
