I love dotfiles, my dream is to create a popular dotfile as the great .gitignore. This mission motivated me to create the DIST(dot)SH project https://github.com/javanile/dist.sh. This is a tool for creating software bundles (ZIP files so to speak) based on a manifest called '.distfile'.
As for the popular '.gitignore' the '.distfile' as a convenient syntax for bundle complex package with custom file structure and ignoring specific files.
## File: .distfile @mybundle-dev.zip +src +test !*.secret @mybundle-prod.zip +src !*.secret !*.custom.py
