Ellipsis is a package manager for dotfiles.


  • Creating new packages is trivial (any git repository is already a package).
  • Modular configuration files are easier to maintain and share with others.
  • Allows you to quickly see which dotfiles have been modified, and keep them updated and in-sync across systems.
  • Adding new dotfiles to your collection can be automated with ellipsis add.
  • Cross platform, known to work on Mac OS X, Linux, FreeBSD and even Cygwin.
  • Large test suite to ensure your $HOME doesn't get ravaged.
  • Completely customizable.
  • Works with existing dotfiles!
