Opal is a Bash shell configuration suite that is re-usable across users and machines, for web developers that favor the command line. Many github users have a ‘dotfiles’ project. My hope is that other people will find Opal as useful as I do. It was designed in part, with the idea of sharing some of my tools. More importantly, I’m constantly improving it, to help myself become more effective. Several utility functions to help with time tracking, looking up information, and text parsing are included, as well as multiple vimrc files to help web developers better comply to the their project’s coding standards.
