Interesting! Does it support the notion of non-root installs, per-user profiles, and arbitrary profiles for Guix? I’m asking because that’s a significant difference between Guix and the other supported package managers. PackageKit, for instance, provides a package management abstraction that’s biased towards “traditional” package managers and is inadequate for Guix. > The overlap with guix.el is obvious, but I believe it makes the user > experience a little smoother when it comes to common tasks. You chose to interface with the command line. I suppose this creates less friction for an initial install compared to using Geiser and the Scheme APIs of Guix, but that’s probably at the expense of expressive power and control (I really like the rich interface that guix.el is able to provide with this approach). Anyway, cool stuff! Now you need to make a package for it. :-) Ludo’.
