Announcing: Tryton is now in Guix

I’m happy to announce that Tryton is now available in Guix. This includes Tryton client, Trytond server, proteus and 161 modules - which is almost all modules.

So you now can have a fully reproducible installation of Tryton.

Additionally, Guix helps you saving disk space and download volumes by sharing packages between environments (without version conflicts, by using symlinks). And you get containered environments, docker images and even virtual machine images by just issuing a slightly different command.

About GNU Guix

GNU Guix is a transactional package manager and an advanced distribution of the GNU system that respects user freedom. Guix can be used on top of any system running the kernel Linux, or it can be used as a stand-alone operating system distribution for i686, x86_64, ARMv7, and AArch64 machines.

In addition to standard package management features, Guix supports transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package management, per-user profiles, and garbage collection. When used as a stand-alone GNU/Linux distribution, Guix offers a declarative, stateless approach to operating system configuration management. Guix is highly customizable and hackable through Guile programming interfaces and extensions to the Scheme language.


Excellent !
I didn’t know Guix and will study it. Thank you.

Update: Using trytond on Guix had required to have python installed into the same profile - otherwise trytond did not find the modules. A few weeks ago I updated the packages. So you might want to give the new packages a try.
