A curated list of dotfiles resources. Inspired by the awesome list thing.
There are many great dotfiles repos out there, each containing their own inspiration and gems. I think one of the best ways to go through them is by searching GitHub for "dotfiles".
A collection of the most popular, well-maintained, and collaborative dotfiles repositories & frameworks. Some projects contain just the dotfiles. Others go further by allowing you to easily add your own custom dotfiles, and/or including scripts to manage dotfiles/plugins.
