@luis_felipe @AbbieNormal Sure, it's this video by Andrew Tropin: "Per-Project Dev Environment", youtube.com/watch?v=pS9JBKdAy4 Hope you'll find it as interesting as I did.

@luis_felipe @AbbieNormal FWIW, pretty much same approach here, although I recently started using direnv for automatically activating (and deactivating) the Guix env. I think you may know of this already but if not I can suggest a nice video that thought me this.

Yeah, I've created my first (dummy) package! I've also set up a custom channel for the package (and the OpenPGP signing scheme).


It took me a few attempts to get things right (e.g. my Guile module path was wrong), but I can finally Guix-install my custom hello-world app.

Hope I'll be able to make good use of this in the future, e.g. to help with packaging.

So, there was this meetup last week about documentation. I took part and learnt a lot, it was very cool.

There's a new meetup planned for this weekend, Sunday 23rd, 430pm UTC.

We pay to Steam, Netflix, Amazon prime, Spotify. But not to Wikipedia, Archive.org, Librivox, Project Gutenberg, for our favourite Linux distro.

The huge asymmetry between corporate and community has not emerged naturally. It is a product of our choices of not supporting community oriented projects.

The short conveniences vs the long-term good. We always chose the former.

In face of surveillance capitalism, we must and must change.

The program of the “Declarative and Minimalistic Computing” track at #FOSDEM is on-line:


Lotta exciting stuff: #RISCV, #Guix Home, #Guix continuous integration, thoughts on #Lisp syntax, #Spritely on #Guile, ccwl, and more! 👍

I gave a talk "5 legal tips to help run your [development] business" to a conference today. It's about contracts and copyright, and the tips probably work for most laws and jurisdictions.

If you want the slides, help yourself:


Hey #guix! We're preparing a documentation meetup this Saturday, January 15 at 10:30am ET (15:30 UTC). This is the right time to learn about guix, share your knowledge and improve documentation in general. See you soon!


Don’t give up on your dreams

Keep sleeping

I love the `guix shell` facility to spawn a development environment for my projects !

#gnu #guix

As a very minor note, I think I'd have gone for a direct reference to the word "markup", as opposed to Markdown. E.g. "OrgMark" or "OrgUp"? But I know I'm being stupidly nitpicky, it doesn't really matter that much.

A very interesting talk re possibly separating 's markup syntax into its own standard so as to make it more usable outside itself. "OrgDown", as @publicvoit named it, would be the perfect markup for emails, the gemini protocol, ... emacsconf.org/2021/talks/org-o
