A Python script that helps you manage dotfiles, symlinking them all from a directory which you can keep under version control, store in Dropbox, rsync to your server, &c..
A framework of dotfiles for the usual terminal apps and shells designed to be cross platform and degrade for older machines.
A more sensible setup than some of the ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ dotfile collections: the idea is to fork the repository, edit the files to taste, then use the supplied script to symlink the configs you need to the right spot in your home directory.
A themes manager that saves your current programs themes and easily loads them later. Changes the look of your desktop on the fly.
Crunchbox supports a handful of applications and the Openbox window manager out of the box, so to speak, but adding plugins for anything that uses text files for configuration is easy.
A community-driven framework for managing your zsh configuration. Includes 40+ optional plugins (rails, git, OSX, hub, capistrano, brew, ant, macports, etc), over 80 terminal themes to spice up your morning, and an auto-update tool so that makes it easy to keep up with the latest updates from the community.
I was certain I’d already linked to
oh-my-zsh before, but Google says otherwise. It’s a great way to get up and running with all the
zsh bells and whistles.
A modular collection of prompt themes, scripts, functions and aliases for bash.
A brief guide to storing your configuration files on Github, which is arguably the best way to back up dotfiles and sync them between different machines.
A bash script that helps you deploy configuration files from a DVCS repo, a folder in your Dropbox, &c..
A new site for sharing configuration files.

Nice. Possibly nice enough for me to clean up the unholy mess that is my dotfiles repo.
[Homesick] uses git to clone a repository containing dotfiles, and saves them in ~/.homesick. It then allows you to symlink all the dotfiles into place with a single command”.
I can’t find a tool that does the opposite of Homesick, scooping up existing dotfiles in
~/ and popping them in a repository—if you know of one, let me know.
