What is Potato?
Potato is a command line tool which helps you to keep the development configs and settings of your Mac as a programmer/developer/coder safe in your GitHub that you
can later use to set up a new machine. Also, Potato is fully configurable so you can track anything from your
.vimrc to all pip packages installed in your system.
Because it seems exciting to develop something in Golang.
Make sure Go is installed in your system.
