How guix home works

What and Why?

  • User packages
  • Dotfiles
  • User-wide configurations
  • User services

home-environment record


Differences of guix-home-manager

  • Read only home and /data
  • New notion of extension-point
  • Lack of important services
  • Other cool, but arguable design descisions

Future features

  • onlogin script
  • shepherd service
  • activation script
  • gpg-agent/pass/mpv/emacs/mbsync/etc
  • operating-system integration instead of skeletons

Future steps

  • Write contribution guide
  • Write documentation
  • Propose it to upstream
  • Move rde/* to home environment
