It provides [[https://www.gnu.org/software/guile/][Guile]] Scheme APIs, including a high-level embedded
domain-specific languages (EDSLs) to describe how packages are to be
built and composed.
A user-land free software distribution for GNU/Linux comes as part of
Guix.
Guix is based on the [[http://nixos.org/nix/][Nix]] package manager.

* Requirements
GNU Guix currently depends on the following packages:
- [[http://gnu.org/software/guile/][GNU Guile 2.2.x or 2.0.x]], version 2.0.9 or later
- [[http://gnupg.org/][GNU libgcrypt]]
- [[http://www.gnu.org/software/make/][GNU Make]]
- optionally [[http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/guile-json/][Guile-JSON]], for the 'guix import pypi' command
- optionally [[http://www.gnutls.org][GnuTLS]] compiled with guile support enabled, for HTTPS support

- optionally [[https://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/guile-json/][Guile-JSON]], for the 'guix import pypi' command
- optionally [[https://www.gnutls.org][GnuTLS]] compiled with guile support enabled, for HTTPS support
in the 'guix download' command. Note that 'guix import pypi' requires
this functionality.
Unless `--disable-daemon' was passed, the following packages are needed:
- [[http://sqlite.org/][SQLite 3]]
- [[https://sqlite.org/][SQLite 3]]
- [[http://www.bzip.org][libbz2]]
- [[http://gcc.gnu.org][GCC's g++]]
- [[https://gcc.gnu.org][GCC's g++]]
When `--disable-daemon' was passed, you instead need the following:
- [[http://nixos.org/nix/][Nix]]
- [[https://nixos.org/nix/][Nix]]
