Disclaimer: The rde project is stable and usable, but still under active development and API is a subject to change.

1.1. Principles

This is a brief list of principles, more detailed description can be found in the manual.

1.1.1. Main

Sane keybindings, good contrast, readable fonts.
Setup can be easily replicated.
Easy to throw out or modify any part of setup.
All state must be explicit and syncable or temporary.

1.1.2. Secondary

Lightweight and battery efficient
wayland, fast native apps.
most of workflows and apps should work without network.
minimal use of notification and other distractive things.

1.2. Usage

Read Getting Started section of the manual, skim through the source code and enjoy the thing!

1.3. Channel introduction

In case you want to use rde as a channel, there is a channel definition:

  (name 'rde)
  (url "https://git.sr.ht/~abcdw/rde")
     "2841 9AC6 5038 7440 C7E9  2FFA 2208 D209 58C1 DEB0"))))

Add it to ~/.config/guix/channels.scm, and call guix pull or manage it any other way you want.

1.7. Guix Home

Guix Home is a part of GNU Guix now, no additional installation steps are required anymore.

1.7.1. People's Guix Home configurations

Those repositories are not affilated with rde or Guix, they are provided as real-world Guix Home usage examples, but be careful and thoughtful, remember that blindly copying snippets of code from the internet can have a huge security implications on your setup.

  • yoctocell's full-blown configuration with variety of software.
  • krevedkokun's Emacs(Evil)/Wayland(Sway) compact and clean config.
  • Nicolas Graves' dotfiles forked from krevedkokun's.
  • akagi's configurations, home and system services and packages.
