Link to a tutorial about versioning your settings with Git



  • Why to version your settings? Because they broke, are complex and sometimes you do not know where the bug is.


  • Why git? Could handle merge conflicts the best way among all version systems as far as I know.

  • Why GitHub or Bitbucket(my case-free private repos)?
    Because you can get your settings and update it among different workstations.


  • How to link different settings of your file system? Finally link to the tutorial.



Remark: I do include into the config repository only the most important files. For example Eclipse contains all settings in one directory ($HOME/.eclipse for standard installation), so I take advantage of that and create classical git repository there.
