Keep Atom Customizations in Dotfiles


I’m looking for advice on how to include customizations I’ve done (style, plugins, whatever) to my dotfiles repo. I’m kind of green when it comes to Node, so I wondered if there was something obviously wrong with adding the entire ~/.atom folder to the repository? It seems like it’s probably a good idea to ignore both the packages and .node-gyp folders.


Here’s how I ended up doing it.

Found the solution via this thread.


I see you explicitly list all the files in your Rakefile.
Here is more automated solution for dotfiles.
