.dotfiles

My .dotfiles influenced by the highly popular holman does dotfiles

components

There's a few special files in the hierarchy.

  • bin/: Anything in bin/ will get added to your $PATH and be made available everywhere.
  • homebrew/install.sh: This is a list of applications for Homebrew and Homebrew Cask to install: things like Chrome, 1Password and Spotify and stuff. Might want to edit this file before running any initial setup.
  • topic/*.zsh: Any files ending in .zsh get loaded into your environment.
  • topic/path.zsh: Any file named path.zsh is loaded first and is expected to setup $PATH or similar.
  • topic/completion.zsh: Any file named completion.zsh is loaded last and is expected to setup autocomplete.
  • topic/install.sh: Any file named install.sh is executed when you run script/install. To avoid being loaded automatically, its extension is .sh, not .zsh.
  • topic/update.sh: Any file named update.sh is executed when you run script/update. To avoid being loaded automatically, its extension is .sh, not .zsh.
  • topic/*.symlink: Any file ending in *.symlink gets 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 script/bootstrap.

install

git clone https://github.com/tylerfowle/.dotfiles.git ~/.dotfiles
cd ~/.dotfiles
./script/bootstrap

upkeep

./script/update will run all update.sh files in all topic folders

dot is a simple script that installs some dependencies, sets sane macOS defaults, and so on. Tweak this script, and occasionally run dot from time to time to keep your environment fresh and up-to-date. You can find this script in bin/.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
