# tombell does dotfiles
~ is where the ♥ is
My dotfiles were originally a fork of @holman's dotfiles. So I'll include a crap
free version of the
README from his repository, rewritten by me.
Your dotfiles are you personalised configuration files for UNIX-like systems,
they usually reside in your home (
git clone https://github.com/tombell/dotfiles ~/.dotfiles
The install rake task will symlink all the correct files from
your home directory. You will want to configure and tweak everything inside the
~/.dotfiles directory though.
Taken from @holman's, there are a few special files in the repository:
bin/, anything in
bin/will get added to your
$PATHand made available everywhere
<topic>/*.zsh, any files ending with
.zshwill get loaded into your environment
<topic>/*.symlink, any files ending with
.symlinkwill get symlinked into your
$HOME. This is so you can keep all of those versioned in your dotfiles but still keep those autoloaded in your home directory. These get symlinked when you run
<topic>/*.completion.sh, any files ended in
completion.shget loaded last so that they get loaded after we set up zsh autocomplete functions
There are a few things I use to make my life awesome. They're not a required dependency, but if you install them they'll make your life more awesome as well.
- If you want some more colours for things like
brew install grc
- If you want
rbenvto manage your ruby installs, install either and you'll get the current ruby version in your prompt
Just open an issue and/or pull request.
I originally forked @holamn's dotfiles, who originally forked @ryanb's dotfiles. So thanks to them both.
