Paul's dotfiles

mathias's readme is awesome. go read it.

This repo is mostly for me but you're welcome to make suggestions. Mathias's is the project to fork. I'm mostly catching up to him, @cowboy, and @gf3.

install the necessary apps

My basic setup is captured in install-deps.sh which adds homebrew, z, nave, etc.

private config

Toss it into a file called .extra which you do not commit to this repo and just keep in your ~/

I do something nice with my PATH there:

# PATH like a bawss
      PATH=/opt/local/bin
PATH=$PATH:/opt/local/sbin
PATH=$PATH:/bin
PATH=$PATH:~/.rvm/bin
PATH=$PATH:~/code/git-friendly
# ...

export PATH

Syntax highlighting

…is really important. even for these files.

Sensible OS X defaults

When setting up a new Mac, you may want to set some sensible OS X defaults:

Similar projects

I recommend getting a .jshintrc and .editorconfig defined for all your projects.
