'Dotfile' is a generalized term for a UNIX configuration file, typically
prefixed with a dot (e.g.
.vimrc) and found in your home directory. Most UNIX
programs, including Vim, will load a dotfile during launch.
We recommend using dotfiles to customize your tools and environment to suit
your preferences, reduce typing, and get work done. Check them into a git
repository for safe-keeping and open-source for the benefit of others.
You can use our dotfiles to make pair
programming with teammates easier and make each other more productive.
