Dotfiles by Alex Palcuie

Hacking like a geek:

  • the playbooks folder contains Ansible that provisions a machine with apps and configs
  • my main machine is a Mac, and I have another Mac at my office, so I keep them in sync
  • there is also a playbook for Ubuntu
  • ZSH shell with oh_my_zsh Prezto and my .zshrc
  • VIM provisioned with Vundle
  • AppleScripts that automate mundane tasks
  • the configs folder is for other apps like Sublime Text or iTerm2

Setup for new Mac machine

  1. Install XCode tools using xcode-select --install
  2. Install Brew
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/go/install)"
  1. Install Ansible using Brew brew install ansible
  2. As a convention ~/dotfiles should be this repo
git clone https://github.com/palcu/dotfiles.git ~/dotfiles
  1. Install XQuartz
  2. Run the Ansible playbook for Mac

Setup for new Ubuntu machine

We need a version of Ansible greater than 2.0.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ansible/ansible
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ansible software-properties-common git
git clone https://github.com/palcu/dotfiles.git ~/dotfiles
cd ~/dotfiles/playbooks
