Dave Steinberg's Dot Files (Based on Ryan Bates Dot Files)
These are config files to set up a system the way I like it.
git clone git://github.com/ryanb/dotfiles ~/.dotfiles cd ~/.dotfiles rake install
Generally this is for my work on Linux using bash, but I also spend lots of time on Free/OpenBSD.
Tab completion is also added to rake and cap commands:
rake db:mi<tab> cap de<tab>
To speed things up, the results are cached in local .rake_tasks~ and .cap_tasks~. It is smart enough to expire the cache automatically in most cases, but you can simply remove the files to flush the cache.
If you're using git, you'll notice the current branch name shows up in the prompt while in a git repository. In addition, you'll see a clean working directory colored in green, and a dirty one in red.
If there are some shell configuration settings which you want secure or specific to one system, place it into a ~/.localrc file. This will be loaded automatically if it exists.
There are several features enabled in Ruby's irb including history and completion. Many convenience methods are added as well such as “ri” which can be used to get inline documentation in IRB. See the irbrc file for details.
