My Dotfiles

Build Status LICENCE

Your dotfiles are how you personalize your system. These are mine. I was a little tired of having long alias files and everything strewn about(which is extremely common on other dotfiles projects, too). That led to this project being much more topic-centric. I realized I could split a lot of things up into the main areas I used, so I structured the project accordingly.


Warning: If you want to give these dotfiles a try, you should first fork this repository, review the code, and remove things you don’t want or need. Don’t blindly use my settings unless you know what that entails.

Use at your own risk!

There are various ways you can install the dotfiles either fork or clone or download repo.

  • Option #1
cd $HOME
git init
git remote add -f[USERNAME/REPO_NAME].git
git pull -f
git checkout -f master
bash .dotfiles/ install
  • Option #2
rsync -uar --delete-after dot-files-master/{.,}* $HOME
cd $HOME
bash .dotfiles/ install
  • Option #3
cd $HOME
git clone --depth 1
rsync -uar --delete-after dot-files/{.,}* $HOME
bash .dotfiles/ install

The command (bash .dotfiles/ install) will create symlinks for config files in your home directory.

After installation is complete, test if everything was installed successfully.

bash .dotfiles/ test

To uninstall run;

bash .dotfiles/ uninstall
