Pete Keen's Dotfiles
These are my dotfiles. That means primarily this is
emacs with some
bash thrown in with a tiny amount of other stuff. I've drawn heavily from the ideas put forth by Zach Holman's dotfiles. The core idea is that these files are organized by topic, not software. That means, for example, that all of the ruby things, both bash and emacs, belong in the same area.
I've changed a few little things:
- Modules are listed explicitly in
~/.modules, one per line, and are loaded in the specified order. This lets me set up different configs for work and home while still sharing almost everything else.
- Each module can have it's own
bin/. These are added to the path module-file order.
- I use
- The core
bashconfig looks for
init.shin every module
- The core
emacsconfig looks for
init.elin every module
- Emacs uses el-get to manage 3rd party dependencies.
To get started:
$ git clone https://github.com/peterkeen/dotfiles.git $ cd dotfiles $ rake setup_modules $ <edit ~/.modules as appropriate> $ rake install
Adding a new module is simple. Just make a directory, drop
<something>.symlink into it, and list it in your modules file.
