Busy taming dragons..

This website serves as a personal blog and will be dealing with Linux and FOSS projects mostly 🦅

For a few years, I have found a deep passion for open source and Linux. As I kept learning about the importance of FOSS ecosystems, I quickly got interested in self-hosting open-source alternatives and contributing to a few projects myself. That’s also how I got involved in the development of Garuda Linux.

My most recent project is writing a new build system for Garuda Linux and Chaotic-AUR using on GitLab CI, Bash and Docker 😊 During work hours, I’m in training to become a professional application developer.

Some of the projects I maintain or contribute to:

Garuda Linux

Garuda Linux is an Arch-based Linux distribution that is both beautiful and easy to use. I’m mostly maintaining the infrastructure and a few editions. You can read more about it here. 🦅


Chaotic-AUR is an Arch user repository that provides binary builds for roughly 3k packages, most of them being built hourly straight from AUR. As the lead maintainer, I’m in charge of handling the repository and coordinating work. Have a look at this page to find out more! 😁

NixOS "dr460nixed" flake

I particularly enjoy maintaining my devices as well as the Garuda infrastructure, since they are both NixOS-driven. My setup is available as ISO with an installer, bringing this particular setup to everyone who likes it.


FireDragon is a Librewolf fork that focuses on providing a smoother user experience while keeping the important privacy tweaks. It also integrates quite well with some of our self-hosted services such as searX. Wanna know more about it? 😋
