    This is really important stuff. Even my tools which do respect proper config directories are doing it lazily, looking in ~/.config and such instead of checking the XDG environment variables first. I’ll have to pull this through.

      Yeah, after reading this article I decided to make an effort to always utilize the XDG environment variables for anything software I write needing to store data for a user. Would definitely make for a better experience using Linux as a platform.
