This week while copying some of my dotfiles (due vim and zsh configuration) to a new remote host (dedicated server) of a new client I had to remove the private stuff (mainly aliases) from my .zshrc. Only now did the muse hit me to split the file and leverage the
source (import, require, include) functionality.
So I moved the host specific and private stuff from .zshrc and added the following 2 lines after
[ -f .zshrc_priv ] && source .zshrc_priv
[ -f .zshrc_host ] && source .zshrc_host
After editing .zshrc and moving some lines into
.zshrc_host I also commented the files header to be reminded about their purpose in the future 😀
# Sourced by .zshrc
# Private settings due public version control
alias vps='TERM=xterm-256color autossh -M 0 mike@vps' # host vps set in .ssh/config
alias vps_tunnel='autossh -f -M 0 -T -N -R 10022:localhost:22 mike@vps'
# Sourced by .zshrc
# Host specific settings
Next I gonna separate some vim plugin specific code, too, to have a copyable (Plug & Play) config.
Thanks to Paul Irish for the git open command.
According to docs https://getcomposer.org/doc/articles/troubleshooting.md#memory-limit-errors I ended up aliasing composer command:
alias composer="php -d memory_limit=-1 $(which composer)"
I switch between computers and sometimes when I’m switching I need to push an URL/prepare a window so found a solution with the following command:
mike@remotehost $ export DISPLAY=:0; nohup chromium --new-window https://github.com/deployphp/deployer#installation
Working on more than one computer requires some remote control and the command line is pretty elegant solution for me.

I also attached the code to the multimedia keys for the keyboard in .config/awesome/rc.lua
Working on two computers requires some control from command line (CLI). Glad that VLC implemented command line control.
I just found a solution at http://stackoverflow.com/a/9047708/289404 and made some command scripts in my home directory bin (~/bin).
Scripts that I use can be seen at https://gist.github.com/mikaelz/71055bbf5fc1aaf34ae7
