These are my dotfiles. I do not maintain these at a high enough level of standard to support other people trying to use this. You're welcome to grab whatever you want, but it's not a full-stack. Any documentation is actually notes to myself - because we all want docs when we're unboxing that shiny new computer and thinking "this is nice and all, but where's my vim plugins?"
Step 1: Prereqs
In no specific order, yet some kind of forethought has been taken in the order anyway:
- OS X GCC installer (if you plan on using any version of ruby before 1.9.3 - otherwise this can be skipped).
- Xcode CLI tools
- If still behind that freakin annoying work firewall, install
- Set default shell to ZSH
- Install my SSH keys (they should be floating around Dropbox somewhere...)
- SSH to some server to put the auth in Keychain (for no more annoying
'type the password for
Step 2: Clone me!
Clone this here repo to
~/.dotfiles or somewhere nice and quiet.
Remember to add
--recursive-submodules or you'll
have to thunk around with Janus a lot more than should be necessary.
git clone --recursive firstname.lastname@example.org:NSError/dotfiles.git ~/.dotfiles
Step 3: Secrets
~/.secrets file for user-specific information. It should look
something like this:
export GIT_AUTHOR_NAME='' export GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL='' export GIT_COMMITTER_NAME='' export GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL='' export GITHUB_USER='NSError' export GITHUB_TOKEN=wtf was this?
Step 4: Vim!
My Vim config has finally left the era of Janus. I'm now rocking a custom setup which is something of a hybrid between Janus and spf13's vim setup. This has created a very nice situation where I don't have a (lot) of stuff I don't use, and I'm not constantly hitting keys and finding it doing things I'm not familiar with.
Install the right bundles by simply telling Vim (and Vundle) to do so:
vim +BundleInstall +qall
Next, install the patched powerline font; I used the Menlo font found at
here (though it is included in the repo for the sake of laziness; just
cd ~/.dotfiles; open . in order to get at it in OS X):
Pick one that works on the platform you're using; consider writing some conditionals in .vimrc to handle that, too.
Step 5: ???
Step 6: Profit!
Install iTerm2. In Preferences > General under the Preferences sub-heading, check "Load preferences from a user-defined folder or URL:" and then set that folder or URL to:
Obviously you'll want to mangle that based on the local username. Reload iTerm2, and everything should be exactly as it should be. Fun, no?
