reedcwilson does dotfiles
Your dotfiles are how you personalize your system. These are mine. The very prejudiced mix: Mac, zsh, git, vim. If you match up along most of those lines, you may dig my dotfiles.
This is just a fork of dontangg's dotfiles. I have removed a lot and changed it to fix my setup.
git clone git://github.com/dontangg/dotfiles ~/.dotfiles
The install rake task will symlink the appropriate files in
.dotfiles to your
home directory. Everything is configured and tweaked within
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.
Everything's built around topic areas. If you're adding a new area to your
forked dotfiles — say, "Java" — you can simply add a
java directory and put
files in there. Anything with an extension of
.zsh will get automatically

.symlink will get
symlinked without extension into
$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.
There's a few special files in the hierarchy.
- bin/: Anything in
bin/will get added to your
$PATHand be made available everywhere.
- topic/*.zsh: Any files ending in
.zshget loaded into your environment.
- topic/*.symlink: Any files ending in
*.symlinkget 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
- topic/*.completion.sh: Any files ending in
completion.shget loaded last so that they get loaded after we set up zsh autocomplete functions.
There are a few things I use to make my life awesome. They're not a required dependency, but if you install them they'll make your life a bit more like a bubble bath.
- If you want some more colors for things like
ls, install grc:
brew install grc.
- If you install the excellent rbenv to manage multiple rubies, your current branch will show up in the prompt. Bonus.
