Managing dotfiles

2014/09/23

I have been looking for a way to manage my dotfiles primarily in order to share them easily between multiple computers.

The solution I’ve settled for is to use rcm: I have all my dotfiles in a single folder (~/Documents/dotfiles) and rcm then symlinks everything to my home folder.

This was also a good opportunity to clean up my dotfiles. And I’ve pulled myself together to share them on GitHub.

In order to utilize the settings for rcm the .rcrc file should be symlinked to the rcrc file in the dotfiles library.
