Originally forked from Holman Does Dotfiles, many years ago. Changed considerably since.
These dotfiles would typically be installed as part of my "setup machine" scripts. If you'd like to install them separately, crack open a Terminal window, and type the following:
git clone https://github.com/monooso/dotfiles.git ~/.dotfiles bash ~/.dotfiles/script/bootstrap
This will symlink the appropriate files in
.dotfiles to your home directory.
Everything is configured and tweaked within
The main file you'll want to change right off the bat is
which sets up a few paths which will probably differ on your machine. The
system/aliases.zsh file also contains a
code alias which you may wish to
As a general rule of thumb, these dotfiles should be used for configuration, not installation (that's the job of the "setup" scripts).
Everything is built around topic areas. If you want to add some handy MySQL
aliases, for example, add a
mysql directory, and put your files in there.
Anything with an extension of
.zsh will be automatically included in your
shell. Anything with an extension of
.symlink will be symlinked without an
$HOME when you run
The bootstrap script
The bootstrap script works as follows:
bin/: Anything in
bin/will get added to your
$PATHand be made available everywhere.
<topic>/path.zsh: Any file named
path.zshis loaded first and is expected to modify the
<topic>/\*.zsh: Any files ending in
.zshare loaded into your environment.
<topic>/completion.zsh: Any file named
completion.zshis loaded last and is expected to setup autocomplete.
<topic>/\*.symlink: Any files ending in
.symlinkget symlinked into your
$HOME. This is so you can keep all of those versioned in your dotfiles but still keep those autoloaded files in your home directory. These get symlinked in when you run
