These are my dotfiles. They are awesome.

This repo contains my dotfiles which I use at macOS, FreeBSD and Linux systems. This set features a nice and fast zsh config, a neat vim environment and a tmux config.

The workstation realted stuff is mostly tested on macOS. Especially the key bindings may be not portable at the moment.

Alacritty window using the dotfiles by chrisb86

The zsh prompt is handcrafted to look neat and provide some extra info. When you are root the user- and hostname color changes from blue to red. If you are connected via ssh, the prompt will show some green arrows behind the working path and when you are in a git repository, it will show some git infos at the right side.

The tmux config contains some nice settings to make my work a bit easier and look nice.

My color scheme is the awesome Nord Color scheme by Arctic Ice Studio and my font is FiraCode Source Code Pro.

The repo ships with a Makefile that you can use to deploy and update the dotfiles.

The dotfiles will be copied to your ~.

The repo is initialized for beeing used with git-secret. My own personal secrets are pushed to the repo as well and can be decrypted with my GPG key.

ZSH with bells and whistles

The ZSH config doesnt use any frameworks and is tuned for speed.

The config delivers some nice extra functions.


extract can be run with extract to extract archives in any given formats.


tmix creates a new tmux session and connects to a given list of servers with mosh and attaches to a tmux session at the server.

You must define a space separated list of servers as $TMIX_SERVERS=“” e.g. in ~/.zsh/lib/30-extras.zsh.

You can define a name for the used session in $TMIX_SESSION=“”. Otherwise it will use „TMIX“.

tmix kill kills the session.

tmux config

The tmux config rebinds the prefix key to C-a. It features different shortcuts to make my life easier (e.g. "C-a -„ for splitting the window horizontally.)

It also supports nested sessions with a modified color scheme. Thats nice when using tmix.

### Getting the dotfiles.

git clone https://github.com/chrisb86/dotfiles.git

Deploying the dotfiles

For installing the base set for shell usage run
