Here's a repo of all of my favorite environment configurations, including setups for zsh, xterm, tmux, vim, i3, etc. If you're in it for a quick install and you trust me, you can just run:
sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nicholastmosher/dotfiles/master/install.sh)"
Now let me explain what you just installed
Let's start with the management technique. The root of this repository represents the status of your homedir after installing. This is done by placing the git repo into a side folder (~/.dot) so that subdirectories of your homedir (and thus, other git repositories) aren't shadowed by the dotfiles repo. If you'd like to read more about this technique, the original idea came from this hacker news article which was later referenced in this atlassian blog post.
This means that you can manage any file or directory in your homedir, provided
that you use the alias
dot instead of
git while referencing the dotfiles
repo. For example, if you add some aliases to
.alias and want to commit them,
you would use
dot add .alias dot commit -m "message"
Most of my vim installation process came from
Harlan's setup. It's got a
script to download and install vundle, and a bundles file (.vimrc_bundles) that
lists the git repositories of plugins to install. Run
everything will handle itself. If you want to just install the vim setup
without the other dotfiles setup, you should be able to just run
sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nicholastmosher/dotfiles/master/.vim/setup.sh)" curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nicholastmosher/dotfiles/master/.vimrc > $HOME/.vimrc
Most of my tmux setup involves integrating with vim for inter-pane navigation
using C-(h j k l). Apart from that, the only other changes are the powerline
theme and navigating to next/prev windows using
