Download someplace convenient. For example,

# Hide inside of $HOME directory, no pun intended :)
git clone https://github.com/thewhodidthis/dotfiles ~/.files


Make links or copy as appropriate prefixing with a . to install. For example,

# Create symbolic links for all "runcom" files, but OK
# maybe only some of these are needed to begin with
find *rc -type f -exec ln -fs ~/.files/{} ~/.{} \;

Save local changes separately. For example,

# Start a new branch to keep track of per machine
# edits named after e.g., `hostname(1)`
git checkout -b gina

Would rather be using Bash? No problem, just ln -fs ~/.files/kshrc ~/.bashrc, then source in ~/.profile along the lines of:

if [[ -f "$HOME/.bashrc" ]]; then
  . "$HOME/.bashrc"
