Jonis config files

My dotfiles and zsh config.

Terminal setup

ZSH, git and dotfiles

The setup script .joni-config/ will ask before overwriting your existing dotfiles. You can cancel this by passing -f as an argument.


sudo apt-get install git zsh aptitude build-essential mosh curl tmux net-tools whois
sudo locale-gen en_US en_US.UTF-8 de_CH.UTF-8
sudo sh -c "echo 'LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8\nLANG=en_US.UTF-8\nLC_TIME=de_CH.UTF-8' > /etc/default/locale"
git clone ~/.joni-config
mkdir -p ~/.fonts
cp ~/.joni-config/terminal/Inconsolata-dz-Powerline.otf ~/.fonts
~/.joni-config/ -f
nano ~/.oh-my-zsh/custom/aliases_local.zsh ~/.gitconfig
chsh -s '/usr/bin/zsh'


xcode-select --install
git clone ~/.joni-config
~/.joni-config/ -f
nano ~/.oh-my-zsh/custom/aliases_local.zsh ~/.gitconfig
chsh -s '/bin/zsh'

Manually install

The file terminal/osx-terminal-like-iterm.terminal contains settings for Apples Terminal App which make it look (almost) the same as the included iTerm2 settings.

Setup shell and keyboard shortcuts

  • Install the powerline font.
  • Load new iTerm2 Settings: in iTerm preferences, set ~/.joni-config/terminal as folder to load preferences from
  • Start BetterTouchTool, import preferences from here

Upgrade/Update installed apps

brew update && brew upgrade brew-cask
brew upgrade
# use with caution
brew cleanup --force -s && rm -rf $(brew --cache)

Hombrew-Cask: "It is generally safe to run updates from within an Application."


A tmux config is included and linked to ~/.tmux.conf. If it does not exist alrady, a link is also created from ~/.tmuxp to the included tmuxp config folder. To use it, install tmuxp: pip install tmuxp.

# use tmx to launch a new tmux session or attach to the existing one
# use tmx2 to attach to the existing session in a second shell window, e.g. for a log window
# launch tmuxp session, e.g. rails
cd <rails_project_dir>
tmuxp load rails
