Manage your dotfiles

2017-01-25 / 2 minutes.


Ah! Joys of configuration. All developer under Linux or Mac knows them. Even more if you are console addict like me. Configuration of Tmux, Vim, Zsh.... etc.

"OK, we know what are dotfiles. Get to the point?"

The problems with the dotfiles are making them follow you on different workstation, how version them, etc...

"Can't you do that with git?"

You can. And you should. So we make a dotfiles repository, we put our files in it and then it get .... boring. We have to link our files from our repository to our   $HOME folder. Some of us will make a script to make it automatically.

"OK, we get it, it's boring. Your solution?"

My solution is [dotbot](https://github.com/anishathalye/dotbot)! It's a tool which automate the linking of your files and more.

"Looks great, how do we use it?"

To use [dotbot](https://github.com/anishathalye/dotbot):

"How do you fill it?"

It's pretty simple:

For more information on how to use it, check the [README](https://github.com/anishathalye/dotbot/blob/master/README.md) of dotbot.

And I can't not show my dotfile, so check them [here](https://gitlab.deep-nope.me/mnivoliez/dotfiles).
