A modal TUI greeter for greetd written in zig using spoon.



This repository contains git submodules. To get it, run:

git clone https://git.sr.ht/~andreafeletto/buongiorno
cd buongiorno
git submodule update --init

If your system uses systemd-tmpfiles:

zig build -Drelease-safe -Dsystemd
sudo zig build -Drelease-safe -Dsystemd --prefix /usr

Otherwise, you will have to manually install the cache directory:

zig build -Drelease-safe
sudo zig build -Drelease-safe --prefix /usr
sudo install -d /var/cache/buongiorno -o greeter -g greeter


The following /etc/greetd/config.toml sets "andrea" as the dafault user and tells buongiorno to launch the command compositor after a successful login.

command = "buongiorno -c compositor -u andrea"
