My manjaro dotfilesLatest mention: Some front-end developers here? | reddit.com/r/vim | 2021-01-11
In my projects I usually have a jsx file for a single component and the corresponding styles will be in a separate file. I created a vim function to open/create that file for styles. If you have a similar filestructure, you can just adjust the function to your needs: https://github.com/realestninja/Dotfiles/blob/master/vim/vim_config/features/openStyledComponentsFile.vim
My dotfiles and a shell script to manage themLatest mention: Using GNU Stow to manage your dotfiles (2012) | news.ycombinator.com | 2020-12-26
I really like this method as opposed to using a bare Git repository. For one, it's conceptually simpler in my mind; you don't have to understand Git internals to get this working. Secondly, this lets you pick and choose which config files you want to "install" on a machine.
I feel obligated to share my Bash script, dotfiles.sh, that accomplishes what Stow does, but with a few tweaks that I found particularly useful:
dotfiles.sh targets the user's home directory by default (i.e. stow -t $HOME).
dotfiles.sh never symlinks directories, only files (i.e. stow --no-folding). (This was the straw that broke the camel's back and made me roll my own script in the first place.)
dotfiles.sh makes backups of local config files and can restore them if you remove your symlinked version.
My script is quite old now, and I use it so seldomly I'm not convinced there aren't bugs. YMMV.
:computer: dotfiles for a development environment using i3, fish, vim, picom, fzf and pywalLatest mention: Most used DE by openSUSE users. | reddit.com/r/openSUSE | 2021-01-09
Nothing much other than pick i3 or i3-gaps if you want gaps. I use i3 mainly, if you want to check my dotfiles.

At first i just put a private-build-plans.toml file in my dotfiles. But because i want to quickly download the font without rebuilding it every time i reinstall Linux (which take a lot of time on my machine), i create a new repo to host Bmono, after that i just need to run this command to download and install the font:

STOW is great, it is simple and works well especially combined with git. That's what I do , and recently combined it with org-mode for literate programming, so each program has just a README.org that then generates all the files via org tangle  . For example, here is my file that generates my Xorg configuration  over several files, nicely readable on GitHub, in Emacs, or just as plain text.
