Hi sirgazil,

Slowly trying to catch up…

This implementation is missing the following parts:

1. New screenshots
2. Packages pages
    1. Package detail page
    2. Packages issues page
    3. Packages reproducibility page
    4. Packages JSON file

To complete part (1) someone could provide the screenshots (ideally
1920×1080 px) in JPG and add them to the "static/media/img" directory,
and update the list of screenshots in "apps/base/data.scm".
Since “someone” has not shown up yet ;-), maybe we can delay (1), no?

To complete (2), there are some package related procedures missing
I tried to use the code that is already in the current website, but
couldn't figure things out.

To complete part (2.1), there is an issue to solve: package pages go in
paths like "/packages/blender-3.0/", but running "haunt build" with
pages on paths that include "." will render the pages with all the HTML
content inside a pre element. David, the maintainer of Haunt, does not
know yet why this would happen. If this issue is solved, there are
already helper builders in "apps/packages/builders.scm" to generate all
the pages.
Was this issue fixed in the meantime?  David?

So, for now, the packages pages are working as in the current website,
but not using tables (to make it easier to adapt the page to several
screen widths), and packages are distributed in numbered pages to avoid
big HTML pages that take too long to load.

Also, the _javascript_ code that gets package build status is not
integrated (couldn't figure this one out either).
Did you have a chance to look at whether you could include the existing
code?  After all, the code is already there so we should be able to just
“move” it to its new home without further ado.

If that’s more complicated that this, then maybe we can ask for help
from Alex Sassmannshausen, or simply delay it.

To complete (2.2), (2.3), and (2.4) someone could add helper builders to
the packages app, and recycle the related SXML pages already used in the
current website.
Likewise, can’t we just reuse the existing code?  I haven’t looked
closely but I imagine we won’t have to rewrite all of these from

How can we proceed?  I wouldn’t want to let the fancy web site bitrot!
I’m a bit swamped though so it would be more productive if you could
directly hack on it on the repo, but I think you were unwilling to do
this?  Thoughts?  :-)

I was going to take a look again, and see what I could do to complete the thing, but during the application setup of guix 0.13.0 many things were being built and the computer turned off three times. It seems it can't take that job (I didn't have this problem with 0.12.0, though).

So I don't know what to do 

computers need manteinance

This could be a sign that your computer needs a refreshing of its thermal grease and a cleaning of its grates.

Usually when you do that, it becomes an almost new machine and can compile lots of stuff. That's my experience, by the way.

Another thing you could do is wait for a better building servers park to be available for Guix

Rekado has mentioned that an improvement is in the pipe, to be delivered soonish

With that you could find way more binaries ready for use and you won't need your own computer to compile them

Ludo is way more competent and informed than I am, though, so he might have some better suggestion.
