I know that accordingly XDG Base Directory specification there is an effort to make apps to store their data into ~/.local, ~/.config, ~/.cache directories. But unfortunately, there are many apps that do thing in their own way. So there is huge amount of dotfiles in my home folder.
How to get rid of them? I would prefer to have the only
.app special folder where apps store their data. Also three special folders (see above) are acceptable, but hundreds of
.files is really annoying thing.
What if I change the $HOME var to $HOME/.apps? Is there any way to solve this?
