2 Installation

There really is no point in using the GWL without Guix. If you already have a Guix installation, you can install the GWL with guix install gwl.

The Guix Workflow Language uses the GNU build system. To install it from a release tarball just unpack it and run the usual commands:

./configure
make
make install

If you want to build the sources from the source repository you need to bootstrap the build system first. Run autoreconf -vif first and then perform the above steps.

Note that in order for Guix to learn about the “workflow” sub-command provided by the GWL, the Guile module (guix scripts workflow) must be found in a directory on the GUILE_LOAD_PATH.
