README.md

An always growing, always improving, never ending collection of my configuration files.

Installation

  1. Clone the repo in your home directory under the name of .dotfiles.

    cd && git clone https://github.com/tow8ie/dotfiles.git .dotfiles
    
  2. Install rcm. If you’re using a Mac and have Homebrew installed just type brew bundle from within the dotfiles repository.

  3. Install the dotfiles with rcm.

    # General setup
    env RCRC=$HOME/.dotfiles/rcrc rcup
    
    # Or host specific setup, e.g. host 'home'
    env RCRC=$HOME/.dotfiles/rcrc rcup -B home
    

Subsequent runs of rcup no longer need the RCRC env variable or the host variable being set.

Emacs

Emacs isn’t installed by default. You have to choose between a Spacemacs-based configuration and a configuration for vanilla Emacs.

Be sure to delete or backup your existing .emacs.d directory beforehand if you change between Spacemacs or Vanilla Emacs or a preexisting Emacs configuration because the installations don’t work well with a mix of these configuration options.

Spacemacs

In addition to the installation above install the spacemacs tag and install Spacemacs itself:

rcup -t spacemacs
git clone https://github.com/syl20bnr/spacemacs ~/.emacs.d

Vanilla Emacs

In addition to the installation above install the vanilla-emacs tag:

rcup -t vanilla-emacs

Mac-specific additions

When running the brew bundle command of Homebrew a wrapper/helper script gets installed that fixes the problem that when using tmux on Mac OS X the system clipboard is not available by default.

Also, Cask is installed, which is used by Pallet for managing Emacs package dependencies.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
