Thank you for the hint. hpcguix-web is awesome! I installed it locally
with the following declaration:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
;; added modules: (guix channels) (gnu services web)
(service hpcguix-web-service-type
      #~(define site-config
                ;; ...
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

When I open the website ( in the browser, no
packages are listed and the browser console shows 404-errors occurring
for the following routes:

Does hpcguix-web depend on a web-server (like nginx) to server a certain
folder? Or what am I missing?
