Something special here by the same young artist responsible for the beautiful polybar themes and he calls this Archcraft OS. It’s straight up ArchLinux r/Unixporn edition. Fully themed and minimally loaded, the 8-18-2020 ISO comes with bspwm and openbox desktops with multiple preconfigured themes/setups for each available via menu or keybind. Using this to teach me bspwm and generally just nice to look at
Looks good. If I had to make something like this, it would contain sway and Openbox.
And bonus points for being a Gravity Falls fan.
How well does it run?
It runs as well as any I suppose? What do you mean?
Just wondering if it ran smooth and was usable, or if it tended to lock up/crash.
Sounds like it’s pretty good.
Ah, zero non-PEBKAC issues so far I sent the creator a mail with a link to here as well in case he felt like chiming in at any point. wonder if he got that
Just trying out the live ISO out.
Not sure about the legalities of including the music that is in the Music folder?
No clue, hopefully its in the free/distributable domain, but not something I’m going to stress myself about
Ooh, a distribution from @Addy, very nice
He’s a member here and we are occasionally graced with scrots from his gorgeous desktop over at the Debian forums.
Sorry but wrong person. It’s Adi, not Addy
Oops, what a mistake to make
This is pretty nice
blindingly bright but sexy as hell
I installed it on a partition, even used one of his Archiso builds before he launched Archcraft. Visually, it’s pretty stunning, and the switchable themes are quite clever. As a distro itself, I’d rather build it on top of Arch, as it seemed a little like his own preference of build, but you can build your own Archcraft ISO and do it that way. IMO it’s a great use and display of Openbox, and the update to his original release is much improved, from what I gather due to the user feedback.
I like the minimalism. Compared to “spin” like Mabox - which feels claustrophobic for an Openbox distro - Archcraft is more like Crunchbang in philosophy, but with peacock feathers and a Polybar. It’s a rousing start, bold and imaginative. I haven’t tested it as far as a use case like a platform for my eventual DAW (as in workflow and such), but it’s only been out for a couple of months. I look forward to see how much progress it makes in the future.
