Documentation and instructions on how to install can be found here.

Dharmx also wrote a nice, beginner friendly introductory guide for eww here.

Eww needs your opinion!

I've hit a bit of a design roadblock for one of the bigger features that are in the works right now.

Please read through #453 and share your thoughts, ideas and opinions!
