Share your dotfiles using Dropbox

Instead of setting up a GIT repo in your home folder, simply do:

mkdir ~/Dropbox/dotfiles # or moral equivalent
mv ~/.vim ~/.vimrc ~/.zshrc ~/.zshenv ~/Dropbox/dotfiles
ln -sf ~/Dropbox/dotfiles/.[a-z]* .

Now repeat the last line on all your machines and voilá! Instant environment sync!

My dotfiles folder contains as of now:


Now I can work from the desktop or notebook even sharing shell history.

Validated on OSX and Linux.
