All Hail Dotfiles

These are my UNIX-y configuration files, known colloquially as "dotfiles" because most of them begin with a period (a "dot"). These configurations are used in OS X, so some may not be applicable or may not work properly at all in other environments. Most should work in flavors of Linux, though.

Important note: These are my personal configuration files, which are in a constant state of change as I develop my environment across several systems. I can't guarantee that these configurations will work for you, at all, so if you encounter problems with them, you're pretty much on your own.

Linking

I have also provided a handy bash script called linkall that will handle the arduous process of symlinking each of these configurations into your home directory. Why would I do this? So that these files can live in their own directory as an isolated git repository and also function as configuration files in your home directory at the same time. Simply run linkall and you're done.

Usage

Usage is straightforward.

$ git clone https://github.com/aaronbieber/dotfiles.git ~/dotfiles
$ ~/dotfiles/linkall

My .bashrc file is now capable of environments. To take advantage of environment partitions, export the MY_LOCATION environment variable from your .bash_profile and then source the .bashrc file, like so:

#!/bin/bash

export MY_LOCATION=home

if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
	source ~/.bashrc
fi
