Ryan's dotfiles.

These are my dotfiles for the zsh shell using oh-my-zsh.

mathias's readme is awesome. go read it.

This is a fork of Paul Irish's dotfiles, which is a fork of mathias's. However, since I'm using zsh and not bash, I've removed quite a few dotfiles.

Sensible OS X defaults

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


Overview of files

automatic config

  • .ackrc - for ack (better than grep)

shell environement

  • .aliases
  • .zshrc
  • .exports
  • .functions

manual run

  • - random apps
  • .osx - run on a fresh osx machine
  • .brew - homebrew intialization


  • .git
  • .gitattributes
  • .gitconfig - global config, including aliases
  • .gitignore - global gitignore


  • hipster.zsh-theme - yeah, it's not a dotfile


git clone && cd dotfiles && ./

To update later on, just run the sync again.
