I decided to take a look at a problem that I’ve had for a while, and have just learned to ignore. It was one of those problems that one can generally live with, but it started to grate, and I had some time over the holidays so I devised a solution. ❌ The Problem I hate clutter, especially hidden files (aka dotfiles) in my home directory (~). I recently conducted a very scientific study via a Twitter poll, and (while I definitely lowballed my poll choices), it showed that most people (at least the primarily tech-y people in my Twitter feed) have well over 20 dotfiles in their home directory.
