Wie macht ihr eigentlich Euer Dotfile-management?


* yadm (bare git repo, nur ein repo möglich, erlaubt Teile zu
verschlüsseln, git-integration), siehe

Yadm is just great!

Yes, yadm is awesome, very easy to use and has some great features
(templates, os-dependent files linking, ...). But it has some
drawbacks. AFAIK it only supports a single repository. But when I'm
using multiple machines and some of them are untrusted (so others have
access to my files), I don't want all my sensitive eggs (so everything,
which has to do with access management, e.g. ~/.netrc) in that one
basket - regardless on the ability to have those files encrypted.

I'm aware that this is a design choice, which makes sense in some cases,
but IMHO not in all of them.

Now I'm using yadm for dotfile-managemet on computers where I'm the only
user, but only for dotfiles without really sensitive information.

How do you do it?

Best wishes,
