Using Git and the bootstrap script

You can clone the repository wherever you want. (I like to keep it in ~/repositories/Terminal/dotfiles, with ~/dotfiles as a symlink.) The bootstrapper script will pull in the latest version and copy the files to your home folder.

git clone https://github.com/CevinEichnau/dotfiles.git && cd dotfiles && source bootstrap.sh

To update, cd into your local dotfiles repository and then:

source bootstrap.sh

Alternatively, to update while avoiding the confirmation prompt:

set -- -f; source bootstrap.sh

Add custom commands without creating a new fork

If ~/.extra exists, it will be sourced along with the other files. You can use this to add a few custom commands without the need to fork this entire repository, or to add commands you dont want to commit to a public repository.

You could also use ~/.extra to override settings, functions and aliases from my dotfiles repository.



Use the Visor.terminal in ~/dotfiles/init/Visor.terminal.

Install Homebrew formulae
