Appfile Berksfile Blakefile Brewfile buildfile Caddyfile Cakefile Capfile Caskfile Cheffile Dockerfile Doxyfile Fastfile Filefile Gemfile Gruntfile Guardfile Huxleyfile Jakefile Knylefile Makefile Modulefile Podfile Portfile Procfile Puppetfile Rakefile Sitefile Tenderfile Vagrantfile

Creating your very own Filefile
$ cd /path/to/your/project $ touch Filefile && ls *file >> Filefile
