Matt Ryan Does Dotfiles

A grossly opinionated set of system configurations, specific to Linux while aiming to run on macOS.

Install

Run this:

git clone https://github.com/rattlion/dotfiles.git ~/.dotfiles
cd ~/.dotfiles
make

Uninstall

cd ~/.dotfiles
make clean

Symlinks everything except templates to your $HOME dir. Templates are copied.

For example: ~/.gitconfig is copied from ~/.dotfiles/git/gitconfig.template.

Components

There’s a few special files in the hierarchy.

Thanks

Several years ago this project started out as a fork of Zach Holman’s excellent dotfiles which at the time was a fork of Ryan Bates’. I’ve been updating this set since 2012.
