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.
This is my current unix development configuration. I'm working on Mac OS X using iTerm2 with the dark solarized color scheme and Powerline patched fonts. The majority of tools are configured for developing with Ruby in Vim.
Clone and Install
The repository includes a no-frills shell script to setup symbolic links to the home directory.
