Ryan Bates Dot Files These are config files to set up a system the way I like it. Installation git clone git://github.com/ryanb/dotfiles ~/.dotfiles cd ~/.dotfiles rake install # edit ~/.gitconfig and personalize it Environment I am running on Mac OS X, but it will likely work on Linux as well with minor fiddling. I primarily use zsh, but this includes some older bash files as well. If you would like to switch to zsh, you can do so with the following command. chsh -s /bin/zsh Features I normally place all of my coding projects in ~/code, so this directory can easily be accessed (and tab completed) with the "c" command. c railsca<tab> There is also an "h" command which behaves similar, but acts on the home path. h doc<tab> Tab completion is also added to rake and cap commands: rake db:mi<tab> cap de<tab> To speed things up, the results are cached in local .rake_tasks~ and .cap_tasks~. It is smart enough to expire the cache automatically in most cases, but you can simply remove the files to flush the cache. There are a few key bindings set. Many of these require option to be set as the meta key. Option-left/right arrow will move cursor by word, and control-left/right will move to beginning and end of line. Control-option-N will open a new tab with the current directory under Mac OS X Terminal. If you're using git, you'll notice the current branch name shows up in the prompt while in a git repository. If you're using Rails, you'll find some handy aliases (below). You can also use show_log and hide_log in script/console to show the log inline. ss # script/server sc # script/console sg # script/generate a # autotest tlog # tail -f log/development.log rst # touch tmp/restart.txt migrate # rake db:migrate db:test:clone scaffold # script/generate nifty_scaffold See the other aliases in ~/.zsh/aliases If there are some shell configuration settings which you want secure or specific to one system, place it into a ~/.localrc file. This will be loaded automatically if it exists. There are several features enabled in Ruby's irb including history, completion and auto-indent. Many convenience methods are added as well such as "ri" which can be used to get inline documentation in IRB. See irbrc and railsrc files for details.
