Getting started with dotfiles

This #dotfiles thing is hard to miss as a nerd. I already started and created some basic things.

I created a Keybase private Git repo for versioning. The Git integration that the team has made is pretty good so far.

The more I look into different dotfile solutions, the more ideas I get what could be included in my dotfiles. However, I won’t just copy&paste code from others, because this way I won’t understand what an alias, function or whatever does the way I want it. For inspiration the Github Dotfiles page is a great start for me.

P.S. This is my first post with a title, written in the Mac app, which I really like.
