22a's dotfiles

aka. Spooky Lizard Incantation Configuration

This repo contains configuration files for neovim, zsh, tmux, iTerm2, and macOS as well as provision scripts to bootstrap a new machine to create an adequately pleasant development environment.


  • An expensive apple computer*

    * My personal and work machines are all macs so these dotfiles have been tailored specifically for neovim in iTerm2 on macOS. For *nix and/or vim (not neo) support check out the legacy linus branch.

⚠ Warnings ⚠

The provision scripts have been written with a fresh macOS install in mind, it assumes a blank canvas. It will forcibly symlink over your dotfiles if you let it.


Install the xcode command line tools:

xcode-select --install
# Click accept, accept, etc.

Clone this repo:

git clone;
cd dotfiles

Run the provision scripts:
