My Setup

Decided to do one of these because everyone does one of these.

My entire setup is managed with GNU stow, making it easier to replicate on fresh installations. You can find my configuration files on GitHub.

I run Void Linux (glibc) on my HP Envy 13” (2018). To keep things simple, I run a raw X session with 2bwm as my window manager, along with dunst (notification daemon) and Sam’s compton (compositor) fork.

I am a fan of GNU tools, so I use bash as my shell, and coreutils to manage files, archives, strings, paths etc. I edit files with vim, chat with weechat, listen to music with cmus, monitor processes with htop, manage sessions with tmux, read pdfs in zathura. I rarely ever leave the comfort of my terminal emulator, urxvt.

Most of my academic typesetting is done with TeX, and compiled with xelatex. Other fun documents are made with GIMP :).


I'm Akshay, programmer and pixel-artist.

I write open-source stuff to pass time. I also design fonts: scientifica, curie.
