A basic installation ready to tweak

No matter which method, DE or WM you choose, they all have one thing in common, a basic installation with a modest but powerful selection of (terminal-operated) apps and packages to start your deep dive into an Arch-based system. To highlight some of those…

YayA terminal-operated AUR helper that installs packages from the Arch User Repository with ease
FirewallDA secure basic firewall using the default public zone running by default
