Should I do a .dotfiles repo for my configs? 🤔

@Ghosty I always end up making one but not updating it often enough to be really useful lol

@semordnilap I think I’ll do one and use symlinks so that I don’t have to copy them :D.

@Ghosty yes! It becomes super useful. Check out my repo. I've got a alias that uses a bare git repo to track your dotfiles with git.
It's really cool when you can sync your theme across your laptop and desktop, or go back to a 6 month old theme. Haha.

@Ghosty I use stow which does the symlinks. It can remove them well.

@Ghosty of you do store door files in a public got, always review, review, and review to ensure no secrets or sensitive data is tracked in the history ;)
