Dotfiles

As Zach Holman said Dotfiles Are Meant to Be Forked. So to be one of the “Cool Kids” I’ve decided to do the same. I did a refresh of my dotfiles about 2 months ago, and I have currently based them off Ben O’Hara’s Dotphiles.

I’ve tried a ton of different dotfile managers, and finally decided to go with Dotphiles. I will eventually switch to using Ansible to manage them, as I have fallen in love with it.

Feel free to fork and contribute or use them. I wouldn’t reccomend using these without heavy customization, as they are set up for my work environment and may requre other files I have not included.

Below is the README.md from my dots

Installation

Run dotsync ./.dotfiles/dotsync/bin/dotsync -L

Configuration

See the documentation for dotsync for more information.

Backups

Any existing ~/.dotfiles will be backed up into ~/.backup/dotfiles/ if found

Oh-My-ZSH Theme Fix

This is only required if you use the trapd00r theme. Otherwise skip.

The them I use requires some extra steps in order to work. Just follow the following:

cd ~/bin # assume that your ~/bin exists and is in your $PATH
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/trapd00r/utils/master/zsh_path
chmod +x zsh_path

cd /tmp
wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/W/WO/WOLDRICH/Term-ExtendedColor-0.224.tar.gz
tar xvzf Term-ExtendedColor*.tar.gz
cd Term-ExtendedColor*
perl Makefile.PL  # assuming you have perl-Makefile-Parser installed on your box
make
sudo make install
