Dotify Jump to Story

Dotfiles, it's not always easy to track them. Some people store them inside a version controlled directory and symlink them to their home directory, but listener Matthew Bridges sent us a note about Dotify, a neat little gem he built to manage all of that. I can copy all dotfiles from your home directory, link them individually, unlink them and even edit them directly using `dotify edit ` and save all of it to GitHub using `dotify save`.
