I would like to create a more or less configurable theme from https://github.com/worron/awesome-config. But I’m not sure how I should exactly go about doing this.
For one I’ll need to create a NixOS package for the
redflat submodule which is no problem.
awesome-config is full of configurations which one wants to change (it provides 7 different example configurations, a few more or less generic functions and a lot of beautiful icons).
My idea would be to have a namespace
xsession.windowManager.awesome.themes.redflat (or just
xsession.windowManager.awesome.redflat) which includes configuration options like the fonts used in the config, colors, keybindings, etc. But I don’t know if my idea of how to “nixify” this makes a lot of sense…
My goto solution would be to create a package for the
awesome-config repo where I just delete almost all the code from worron and just leave generic functions and the icons. Then I would create configuration options which generate all the code which I deleted in the package with user specific options (there are a few
enables but mostly stuff where you can choose from or enter custom stuff). Is this the “best” way to go or am I missing some smarter way which makes use of the code worron already provides?
Also does this fit into home-manager or is it better to add this to the NUR or a different (maybe even a new) repository?
