Installing on a New System

You can run the following to get these dotfiles installed on your system. It will make a backup of your existing dotfiles.

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mrjones2014/dotfiles/master/scripts/config-init | bash

Then, see manual setup instructions to get started.

Managing Dotfiles

The fish config sets up an alias dots which is an alias to git --git-dir=$HOME/.dotfiles/ --work-tree=$HOME. This means you can dots add ./path/to/file and dots commit -m "Add some file" from any directory, and it will be properly tracked in the repo at ~/.dotfiles. I wrote an article describing this method.

Caveats

Neovim configuration may require Neovim nightly depending on where Neovim's release cycle is at.

I use macOS. Some things in this repo won't work on Linux, but a lot of it will. Feel free to modify anything you'd like to support Linux. It will almost certainly not work on Windows and I have zero interest in supporting Windows in this repo. Microsoft Windows itself is malware/spyware.
