1.1. Principles

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

1.1.1. Main

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

1.1.2. Secondary

Lightweight and battery efficient
wayland, fast native apps.
Offline
most of workflows and apps should work without network.
Attention-friendly
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:

(cons*
 (channel
  (name 'rde)
  (url "https://git.sr.ht/~abcdw/rde")
  (introduction
   (make-channel-introduction
    "257cebd587b66e4d865b3537a9a88cccd7107c95"
    (openpgp-fingerprint
     "2841 9AC6 5038 7440 C7E9  2FFA 2208 D209 58C1 DEB0"))))
 %default-channels)

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