This is a fork of holman/dotfiles. If you like the way this is structured, it is probably worth it to check the original repository and its many other forks.
All credit belongs to holman, who put this together for the rest of us. I only tweaked it to my needs.
Follow the steps:
git clone https://github.com/holman/dotfiles.git /directory/of/choice cd /directory/of/choice script/bootstrap
This will symlink the appropriate files in

The main file you'll want to change right off the bat is
which sets up a few paths that'll be different on your particular machine.
At the very least, you will need to change the
$DOT variable to
Everything's built around topic areas. If you're adding a new area to your

$HOME when you run
A lot of stuff. Seriously, a lot of stuff. Check them out in the file browser above and see what components may mesh up with you. Fork it, remove what you don't use, and build on what you do use.
