@hdasch @Ghosty Dotfile managers make it easy to use the same configuration across multiple machines. I've been using stow for about a year. You move all your dotfiles to one directory and into folders. If I want to save my config for zsh I'd make the path something like ~/dotfiles/i3/.config/i3/config and run "stow zsh" from ~/dotfiles. That makes a symlink from the first path to ~/.config/i3/config. That way, all I have to do is clone the repo, "stow" everything, and it's an identical setup!
@hdasch Really, they just automate the deployment of dotfiles so it's a lot faster, simpler, safer, etc.
@amolith Sounds useful. I should give it try. I see Arch lists several alternatives. Do you have a suggestion?
