    In case you didn't know these kinds of files are often called dotfiles (just because they're often named as something like .config) You can find people's personal dotfiles all over github or by just googling awesomewm dotfiles. I personally like Derek Taylor's (DistroTube) dotfiles, but I also found these right away by googling.
