Your unofficial guide to dotfiles on GitHub.Home
Why would I want my dotfiles on GitHub?
If you’re just starting out, before you go symlinking everything in
might want to check out some tutorials that discuss how you can
organize your dotfiles. Next, you could look through the general-purpose
dotfiles utilities to find a system you can use to manage your
dotfiles. Some tool-specific frameworks could save you time in
customizing specific programs like your shell.
Prefer to start from a popular base configuration? Check out dotfiles bootstrap repositories. Or just looking for inspiration, to see how others are doing things? Check out other GitHub users’ dotfiles or Reddit’s r/dotfiles subreddit.
