Started as a fork of Zach Holman’s dotfiles which was itself a fork of Ryan Bate’s dotfiles. Things are still in flux and I expect more changes. (TODO Better description of the dotfiles than the cursory update that’s been done).
cd ~/ git clone https://github.com/neilpa/dotfiles.git .config cd .config/ ./bootstrap
This will symlink the appropriate files in
~/.config to your home directory.
Everything is configured and tweaked within
The main file you’ll want to change right off the bat is
which sets up a few paths that’ll be different on your particular machine.
Everything’s built around topic areas. If you’re adding a new area to your
dotfiles — say, “Java” — you can simply add a
java directory and put files
in there. Anything with an extension of
.zsh will get automatically
included into your shell. Anything with an extension of
.symlink will get
symlinked without extension into
$HOME when you run
There’s a few special files in the hierarchy.
- bin/: Anything in
bin/will get added to your
$PATHand be made available everywhere.
- topic/*.zsh: Any files ending in
.zshget loaded into your environment.
- topic/path.zsh: Any file named
path.zshis loaded first and is expected to setup
- topic/completion.zsh: Any file named
completion.zshis loaded last and is expected to setup autocomplete.
- topic/*.symlink: Any files ending in
*.symlinkget 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
