- I maintain this repo as my dotfiles, but I'm keenly aware people are using it for theirs.
- You're quite welcome to make suggestions, however I may decline if it's not of personal value to me.
- If you're starting off consider forking mathias or alrra. paulmillr and gf3 also have great setups

This repo contains config for bash, zsh, and fish. As of March 2016, I'm using fish shell mostly, but fall back to bash once in a while. The bash and fish stuff are both well maintained; zsh, less so. If you're using fish you'll want to do a
git submodule update --init.
my favorite parts.
So many goodies.
The "readline config" (
Basically it makes typing into the prompt amazing.
- tab like crazy for autocompletion that doesnt suck. tab all the things. srsly.

cat <uparrow>to see your previous
cats and use them.

Moving around in folders (
z helps you jump around to whatever folder. It uses actual real magic to determine where you should jump to. Seperately there's some
... aliases to shorten
cd ../.. and
.... etc. Then, if you have a folder open in Finder,
cdf will bring you to it.
z dotfiles z blog .... # drop back equivalent to cd ../../.. z public cdf # cd to whatever's up in Finder
z learns only once its installed so you'll have to cd around for a bit to get it taught.
Lastly, I use
open . to open Finder from this path. (That's just available normally.)

There will be items that don't belong to be committed to a git repo, because either 1) it shoudn't be the same across your machines or 2) it shouldn't be in a git repo. Kick it off like this:
touch ~/.extra && $EDITOR $_
I have some EXPORTS, my PATH construction, and a few aliases for ssh'ing into my servers in there.
I don't know how other folks manage their $PATH, but this is how I do mine:
# The top-most paths override here. PATH=/opt/local/bin PATH=$PATH:/opt/local/sbin PATH=$PATH:/bin PATH=$PATH:~/.rvm/bin PATH=$PATH:~/code/git-friendly # ... export PATH
Sensible OS X defaults
Mathias's repo is the canonical for this, but you should probably run his or mine after reviewing it.
