From the excellent dotfiles page on GitHub:
Why would I want my dotfiles on GitHub?
- Backup, restore, and sync the prefs and settings for your toolbox. Your dotfiles might be the most important files on your machine.
- Learn from the community. Discover new tools for your toolbox and new tricks for the ones you already use.
- Share what you've learned with the rest of us.
Clone and Install
This repository includes a no-frills shell script to setup symbolic links to the home directory.
git clone --recursive git://github.com/orien/dotfiles.git ~/.dotfiles ~/.dotfiles/script/setup
When bootstrapping a new Apple computer, I use strap. This handles downloading my dotfiles repo and running the setup script for me.
git clone https://github.com/MikeMcQuaid/strap.git export STRAP_GITHUB_USER=??? export STRAP_GITHUB_TOKEN=??? strap/bin/strap.sh
