Mal Curtis’ Dot Files

Attribution

These were originally forked from Ryan Bates.

Installation

git clone git://github.com/snikch/dotfiles ~/.dotfiles
cd ~/.dotfiles
rake install

Environment

This has been tested to run only on Mac OS, with zsh. If you would like to switch to zsh, you can do so with the following command.

chsh -s /bin/zsh

Features

I normally place all of my coding projects in ~/Code, so this directory can easily be accessed (and tab completed) with the c command.

c railsca<tab>

There is also an "h" command which behaves similar, but acts on the home path.

h doc<tab>

There are a few key bindings set. Many of these require option to be set as the meta key. Option-left/right arrow will move cursor by word, and control-left/right will move to beginning and end of line. Control-option-N will open a new tab with the current directory under Mac OS X Terminal.

See the other aliases in ~/.zsh/aliases

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 irbrc and railsrc files for details.
