Very nice take on it! Will definitely use the alias part. Have you heard of gnu stow? It's a symlink helper, which allows you to have your config in a random folder, then run stow configs (if that was the folder name) and it will symlink the structure of that folder to your home directory. Pretty neat, and only requires gnu stow. It's also available in homebrew for the maccies :)

No, I haven't tried gnu stow but I'll definitely check it out, thank-you :D
