What dotfiles manager do you use?

I'm looking for recommendations for a dotfile manager - there are so many out there I've got a bit of options paralysis!

I'd like a system that can backup all my dotfiles - with version management - and, if I nuked my home directory, could restore them all for me with a simple command.

Thanks in advance for you suggestions!

  • My own intricate system of 4 git repos to manage dotfiles, bash initialization, cli tools/scripts, and system state.

    The last one keeps track of installed packages and "dotfiles" out of the home directory (system config files like /etc/hosts).
