I changed how I handle my dotfiles
By Ariel Costas - September 29, 2021
My dotfiles repo has been fully
upgraded, and now uses GNU Stow as part of its workflow. Instead of having a
bare repo somewhere and running git with the working dir set to
now have a normal git repository on
~/dotfiles and let GNU Stow install those
dotfiles for me in my home directory.
This saves me a lot of problems having to make sure I don’t mistakenly commit my whole home directory, or having files like a README on my home directory just for that repo.
