To install run this:
git clone --recursive https://github.com/viccuad/dotfiles.git ~/.dotfiles cd ~/.dotfiles git submodule init git submodule update ./install.sh
The install script will ask if you want to set your Zsh as the default
shell, make a new gitconfig, install the dependencies, make a dry run that
does not write anything, etc.
Installing a dir will symlink the appropriate files in
.dotfiles to your
home directory. Everything is configured and tweaked within
We are using stow, and stow does not delete or overwrite file that already exist. You will need to make a backup of them or delete them.
