Jack's dotfiles


This is how I personalize my Mac. !!This is for Mac, most of it will work on linux or whatever, but I use this with iTerm2!!

It's relatively simple, I have the main .zshrc which does everything, and it sources .alises and .exports. .aliases has all of my aliases, and .exports has all of the stuff that gets sourced and all that jazz.

The way this is setup is actually pretty easy, symlinking is not required!! I used this tutorial from Atlassian.


So my files are a bit different, I use nano instead of vim, mainly because I'm too lazy to actually learn vim. I also use VS Code so my config file is also in here. I have a hyper config in here as well, but I don't use it. I only use hyper on my PC where I have some wacky stuff setup so that way then I can use the Windows Subsystem for Linux and Windows at the same time, but that's a story for another day...


Prerequisites

  • homebrew xcode-select —-install /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
  • iTerm2 brew cask install iterm2
  • zsh brew install zsh
  • neofetch brew install neofetch
  • zsh-syntax-highlighting (This should get installed when you clone the config, sinceit's a git submodule?)
  • zsh-autosuggestions git clone https://github.com/zsh-users/zsh-autosuggestions ${ZSH_CUSTOM:-~/.oh-my-zsh/custom}/plugins/zsh-autosuggestions
  • colorls gem install colorls
  • oh-my-zsh $ sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/ohmyzsh/ohmyzsh/master/tools/install.sh)"
  • Visual Studio Code
  • (Optional!) SDKMAN curl -s "https://get.sdkman.io" | bash
  • (Optional?) Ruby Version Manager

So these are the steps (I think?)

  1. Prior to doing this, add this alias to your .zsh: alias config='/usr/bin/git --git-dir=$HOME/.cfg/ --work-tree=$HOME'

  2. And that your source repository ignores the folder where you'll clone it, so that you don't create weird recursion problems: echo ".cfg" >> .gitignore

  3. Now clone your dotfiles into a bare repository in a "dot" folder of your $HOME: git clone --bare https://github.com/soarn/dotfiles.git $HOME/.cfg

  4. Define the alias in the current shell scope: alias config='/usr/bin/git --git-dir=$HOME/.cfg/ --work-tree=$HOME'

  5. Checkout the actual content from the bare repository to your $HOME: config checkout

    • This step might fail with a message like:

      error: The following untracked working tree files would be overwritten by checkout: .bashrc .gitignore Please move or remove them before you can switch branches. Aborting

    • This is because your $HOME folder might already have some stock configuration files which would be overwritten by Git. The solution is simple: back up the files if you care about them, remove them if you don't care. Below is a possible rough shortcut to move all the offending files automatically to a backup folder: mkdir -p .config-backup && \ config checkout 2>&1 | egrep "\s+\." | awk {'print $1'} | \ xargs -I{} mv {} .config-backup/{}

    • Re-run the checkout if you had problems: config checkout

  6. Set the flag showUntrackedFiles to no on this specific (local) repository: config config --local status.showUntrackedFiles no

  7. You're done, from now on you can now type config commands to add and update your dotfiles: config status config add .vimrc config commit -m "Add vimrc" config add .bashrc config commit -m "Add bashrc" config push

  • Since this is taken from Atlassian, they made a simple script to help in this process: curl -Lks http://bit.do/cfg-install | /bin/bash

Here's how you import my iTerm2 profile

iTerm ▶ Preferences ▶ Profiles ▶ "Other Actions" (dropdown) ▶ "Import JSON Profiles..." ▶ `Tungsten.json`

So yeah, that's essentially all you gotta do.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
