My dotfiles to be installed on any new Mac/Ubuntu machine I set up-- although mostly geared for Mac. Always a work in progress.
The idea behind how this project is currently structured is to keep everything in the .dotfiles/ folder in the user's home directory. Then to only create a single symbolic link for .bash_profile.
You should have necessary apps installed already. Applications such as Git, Rails, Mongodb, Postgres, Android SDK, mySQL, etc. This repo does not install all that for you. The PATH is set in the .bash_profile file.
Run the following, line by line.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:sunpech/dotfiles.git mv dotfiles ~/.dotfiles cd ~/.dotfiles chmod u+x install.sh ./install.sh
From here make custom changes depending on what kind of dev-box you need.

Git Aware Prompt
I like to use DiffMerge for merging files.
git config --global diff.tool diffmerge git config --global difftool.diffmerge.cmd 'diffmerge "$LOCAL" "$REMOTE"' git config --global merge.tool diffmerge git config --global mergetool.diffmerge.cmd 'diffmerge --merge --result="$MERGED" "$LOCAL" "$(if test -f "$BASE"; then echo "$BASE"; else echo "$LOCAL"; fi)" "$REMOTE"' git config --global mergetool.diffmerge.trustExitCode true
