No xmonad.hs file provided by xmonad wiindow manager


I've install xmonad, a titling window manager, version 0.10 in debian 7.3.

The install went fine and works great. Since xmonad didn't provide a sample xmonad.hs template in the /usr/share/doc/xmonad directory, it is using the default settings for xmonad which looks OK, but a xmonad.hs config file would improve it greatly in appearance and/or other features.

Is xmonad.hs in a package that I didn't download or do you know where I can get a xmonad.hs file? Thanks

PS: If you're not sure what a xmonad window manager is, do a linux xmonad search on youtube and you will see custom xmonad screens. Some will look basic and others will look more fancy like this one here
