Awesome

From NixOS Wiki

awesome is a highly configurable, next generation framework window manager for X. It is very fast, extensible and licensed under the GNU GPLv2 license.

Enabling

To enable awesomeWM set services.xserver.windowManager.awesome.enable to true. For example:

/etc/nixos/configuration.nix
{ config, pkgs, ... }: 


  ...
  services.displayManager = {
    sddm.enable = true;
    defaultSession = "none+awesome";
  };

  services.xserver = {
    enable = true;

    windowManager.awesome = {
      enable = true;
      luaModules = with pkgs.luaPackages; [
        luarocks # is the package manager for Lua modules
        luadbi-mysql # Database abstraction layer
      ];

    };
  };
  ...
}
