Mislav's configuration files for bash, zsh, git, ruby, and more.


Clone somewhere, then run the install script:

$ git clone git:// ~/dotfiles
$ ~/dotfiles/script/bootstrap

Note that this will also install my vimfiles if ~/.vim is missing, set up rbenv if ~/.rbenv is missing, and install Homebrew formulae and OS X apps per Brewfile. These dotfiles are tailored for me, so if this is too much for you to take in at once, consider cherry-picking just the functionality you need.

The install script won't overwrite your existing dotfiles, but will symlink the ones that don't exist. If you want to replace your existing dotfiles, simply move them to a backup location and run install again.
