I guess mhrunnels refers to an index of modules, something that is commonly 
found in API documents. As far as I know, Guix doesn't provide such an index or 
separate API reference documentation. The Guix manual mentions modules and what 
they provide in the context of sections.

What you can do is explore the "gnu" and "guix" directories in Guix's source 
(, which provide all those 
modules and submodules you see imported everywhere. You might also check this 
video for an explanation of the source tree:

Also, You can explore modules using Emacs Geiser and its "Module documentation" 

Personally, though, I'd like to see a complete Guix API index on the web 
(that's on my project manager).
