re: Which dotfiles (e.g. .bashrc, .vimrc) do you actually customize/depend on for your daily dev machine setup? VIEW POST


Without looking at my dotfiles, the first thing id miss is my gpg/ssh config since I use my Yubikey for all SSH and git interactions. This combined with my git config should at least let me pull code and get going.

Then I'd probably want my vim config. I wouldn't be able to code for too long in totally plain vim I don't think, I like vim for it's plugins and configuration and without those I'd feel lost.

Finally my bash profile, cause I do love all my dotfiles aliases!

That would get me productive, throw in my bash_prompt and I'll feel right at home

As I went I'd probably find different tools I didn't have installed, and then I'd want to reach for my Brewfile which contains all the tools I usually install

Off the top of my head that's what I think I'd miss most, in the order I'd want them. But I'm probably missing something that when I check out my dotfiles I wouldn't want to be without 😆

My dotfiles for reference:
