Seems there are a couple of parts to this:

- You need a setup that will work across all of your OS/environments,
  only loading things when appropriate.  This is mostly just taking
  care with what you use where/when.   E.g. I only load my email bits
  on my laptop.

- Keep your configuration in a VCS (e.g. git, perhaps on GitHub) and
  keep the various clones of the repository in sync with pushes/pulls
  as appropriate.

My config is a personalized version of sjrmannings' .emacs.d[1].

It's a really nice framework on which to hang things.  I always smile
when a remember why I have files and things that start with `sm`....

straight.el[2], which sjrmannings' config uses, extends use-package a
bit and provides a wonderful amount of power for running
customized/fixed versions of packages.
