plain text configuration files for my linux systems
Dotfiles are plain text configuration files on Unix-y systems for things like our shell, ~/.zshrc, our editor in ~/.vimrc, and many others. They are called "dotfiles" as they typically are named with a leading . making them hidden files on your system, although this is not a strict requirement.
Since these files are all plain text, we can gather them together in a git repository and use that to track the changes you make over time.
make sure stow is installed on your system
git clone https://github.com/pavanjadhaw/etc ~/ cd ~/etc stow zsh # this will symlink zsh rc files to ~/ stow -D zsh # to unstow or remove symlink
