Matt Ryan Does Dotfiles

A grossly opinionated set of system configurations, specific to Linux while aiming to run on macOS.

Install

Run this:

git clone https://github.com/rattlion/dotfiles.git ~/.dotfiles
cd ~/.dotfiles
make

Uninstall

cd ~/.dotfiles
make clean

Symlinks everything except templates to your $HOME dir. Templates are copied.

For example: ~/.gitconfig is copied from ~/.dotfiles/git/gitconfig.template.

Components

There's a few special files in the hierarchy.

  • bin/: Anything in bin/ will get added to your $PATH and be made available everywhere.
  • topic/*.zsh: Any files ending in .zsh get loaded into your environment.
  • topic/path.zsh: Any file named path.zsh is loaded first and is expected to setup $PATH or similar.
  • topic/completion.zsh: Any file named completion.zsh is loaded last and is expected to setup autocomplete.
  • topic/*.symlink: Any files ending in *.symlink get symlinked into your $HOME. This is so you can keep all of those versioned in your dotfiles but still keep those autoloaded files in your home directory. These get symlinked in when you run script/bootstrap.
  • topic/*.template: Any files ending in *.template get copied into your $HOME. This is so you can keep the file versioned and prepared for other systems while maintaining unique settings across environments.

Thanks

Several years ago this project started out as a fork of Zach Holman's excellent dotfiles which at the time was a fork of Ryan Bates'. I've been updating this set since 2012.
