Bitbucket is a code hosting site with unlimited public and private repositories. We're also free for small teams!


vaxXxa's dotfiles


You can clone the repository wherever you want (I like to keep it in ~/Documents/Projects/dotfiles). The bootstrapper script will pull in the latest version and copy the files to your home folder.

$ git clone && cd dotfiles && ./

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

$ git pull # optional: pull last version
$ ./

Alternatively, to update while avoiding the confirmation prompt:

$ git pull # optional: pull last version
$ ./ -f


$ ./ --force

Git-free install

To install these dotfiles without Git:

$ cd; curl -#L | tar -xzv --strip-components 1 --exclude={README.rst,}

To update later on, just run that command again.

Add custom commands without creating a new fork

If ~/.extra/.local 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 don’t want to commit to a public repository.

My ~/.extra/.local looks something like this:

# Git credentials
git config --global "Vasyl Nakvasiuk"
git config --global ""

# Go environment
export GOROOT=/usr/local/go
export GOPATH=$HOME/Documents/Projects/gocode
export PATH=$PATH:$GOROOT/bin:$GOPATH/bin

source /usr/local/bin/

You can overwrite something using ~/.extra/.local. For example:

# Overwrite alias
alias p="cd ~/Projects"

# Overwrite environment variable
export EDITOR="emacs"

Or you can extend all your dotfiles configuration using ~/.extra/.local like entry point. Your ~/.extra/.local can be like this:

for file in ~/.extra/.{local-exports,local-aliases,work-settings}; do
    [ -r "$file" ] && source "$file"
unset file

And in ~/.extra/.local-exports, ~/.extra/.local-aliases, ~/.extra/.work-settings you can add your own custom commands.
