Dotfile manager.

Terminal utilities
Our review

What we like

Single (Rust) binary for managing dotfiles. Works cross-platform with OS specific config options. Sync across machines with Git. Supports yaml, toml, or json config files. You can create files from templates using the Handlebars syntax. Configs can have dependencies before they are installed. Open source.

What we don't like

Relies on the system-installed Git. Supports distinction between OSs, but not distros within OSs e.g. commands for different Linux distros.
