How do you guys manage your dotfiles? How do you organize them and prevent your home directory from filling up?

    Have written that one for myself

    All my relevant dotfiles are just symlinks pointing to the actual files, that are in a cloud-synced directory, so that I can easily share my config between all my machines.

    @TobiSGD That sounds still complicated considering you need to keep track off all these symlinks?

    @Kyu96 Only when I have to setup a new machine. Doesn't happen that often.

    I just ignore those. It is very rare that I need to change something in them, so don't really care. If I do really need something then usually I have reference, SO or other tips open with command pointing to the correct file that I need to edit.

    I keep my important ones in my KeePass. .vimrc, .bash_profile, .Xdefaults, .xinitrc, and a few others.

    I don't look at them. I only use ls or CTRL+H when using a GUI
