These are the command-line setup and configuration files I use for all my computers, stored on Github for easier sharing between computers and with other people.
- Inspired by dotfiles from Ryan Bates and thoughtbot.
Mostly stolenTweaked from Matt’s dotfiles.
- vim, tmux and zsh setup informed heavily by Trae’s dotfiles
- Other utilities repurposed, tweaked or outright stolen from around the internet.
These dotfiles assume a Mac with the Xcode command line tools, rvm or rbenv, and Homebrew with the
git brews installed. See Shell support for details. In addition, the
highline gem is required to run the installation script.
What’s in the box
These dotfiles support both bash and oh my zsh.
Some features of the
bashrc may work only with bash version 4.2 and greater with bash-completion, which is not installed by default on the Mac. Consider using these steps to get it:
brew install bash bash-completion
- Change your shell to
For oh my zsh setup, do the following:
- Install oh my zsh
- Install zsh-syntax-highlighting
- Install the github gem—this is preferred over the
Shell configuration includes a supercharged prompt for both bash and zsh with ruby and git information, with help from the zsh-git-prompt and bash-git-prompt plugins. To tweak, change the configuration in
git-prompt-colors.shfor bash and
vi command mode is enabled by default in both bash and zsh. To switch back to the default emacs mode, remove the
set -o viline in
Vim configuration with support for selected plugins, with plugin management by Vundle. To use:
editshim will launch
mate(TextMate) if you are on your local Mac, and fall back to
viif you are logged in via ssh. This shim is used as the git editor and svn editor.
mpscript (short for "(Text)Mate project") opens a directory in TextMate. But unlike the basic
matecommand, if the directory does not already have a
.tm_properties, a basic one will be created.
Please note that the TextMate features of these dotfiles are for TextMate 2, currently in beta.
r command serves as a shortcut for running
bundle exec rake or
bundle exec rails. It's pretty smart, so
r s will expand to
bundle exec rails server, and
r db will expand to
bundle exec rake db:console. No more fat-finger mistakes of
This repo also comes with tmux configuration, for you terminal purists. To use:
brew install tmux
brew install reattach-to-user-namespace
Multi-monitor window management setup files are available for Hammerspoon:
- Download and install the latest release
- Tweak the configuration in
hammerspoon/init.luaas you like
gem install highline
