Prefer to default keymap.

You may not require some config. Just remove them to keep your config clean.

#define [user] "your Unix username"
#define [git-user] "your Git username"
#define [git-email] "your Git email"

Shell: Zsh - ~/.zshrc

Use zsh-newuser-install which is started when getting into zsh firstly. Only go to config 4 and add unsetopt beep to disable bell.

Then follow zinit guide to install it:

sh -c "$(curl -fsSL"

Then edit the zshrc file:

# Lines configured by zsh-newuser-install
# ...
# End of lines configured by zsh-newuser-install
# The following lines were added by compinstall
# ...
# End of lines added by compinstall

# env
export EDITOR=/usr/bin/nvim
export PATH="$HOME/.local/bin:$PATH"

# alias
alias sudo='sudo '
alias cp='cp -i'
alias mv='mv -i'
alias rm='rm -I'

### Added by Zinit's installer
# ...
### End of Zinit's installer chunk

# zinit
zinit light zsh-users/zsh-syntax-highlighting
zinit light zsh-users/zsh-autosuggestions
zinit snippet OMZL::git.zsh
zinit snippet OMZL::prompt_info_functions.zsh
zinit snippet OMZL::spectrum.zsh
zinit snippet OMZP::git
setopt promptsubst
zinit snippet OMZT::fino

Used zsh plugins:

  • zsh-users/zsh-syntax-highlighting
  • zsh-users/zsh-autosuggestions
  • oh-my-zsh plugin: git
  • oh-my-zsh theme: fino

Shell: tmux - ~/.tmux.conf

set -g default-terminal screen-256color
set -g mouse on

Version: Git - ~/.gitconfig

Git config uses tab to indent. Use :%s/"\\t"/\t/g in Vim to make substitution.

"\t"name = [git-user]
"\t"email = [git-email]
"\t"s = status
"\t"a = add
"\t"A = add -A
"\t"c = commit
"\t"l = log
"\t"ll = log --oneline --graph
"\t"rebase = true
"\t"helper = cache --timeout 86400

Editor: Neovim - ~/.config/nvim/init.vim

Choose Neovim for better default config.

Follow vim-plug guide to install:

sh -c 'curl -fLo "${XDG_DATA_HOME:-$HOME/.local/share}"/nvim/site/autoload/plug.vim --create-dirs \'

Then edit the init.vim file:

set tabstop=2 expandtab
set shiftwidth=2
set smartindent
set termguicolors
set list
set lcs=tab:>.,space:.

" vim-plug
call plug#begin('~/.local/share/nvim/plugged')
  Plug 'morhetz/gruvbox'
  Plug 'vim-airline/vim-airline'
  Plug 'vim-airline/vim-airline-themes'
call plug#end()

" gruvbox
colorscheme gruvbox

Then use :PlugInstall in Neovim to install plugins.
