If you want a good configuration to start from, it's quite simple.

A very basic configuration, which will work for things like simple terminals but not so well for many modern applications such as web browsers:

import XMonad

main = xmonad defaultConfig

A more modern and more easily customized, yet still minimal, configuration (requires xmonad-contrib). Use this config if you plan to run Chromium; recent versions do not work correctly if you do not have desktop support enabled!

import XMonad
import XMonad.Config.Desktop

baseConfig = desktopConfig

main = xmonad baseConfig

In this one, if you want to add things to various hooks (anything that ends with Hook, except layoutHook which is handled specially), you should prepend hookName baseConfig <+> to the new value, e.g.

import XMonad
import XMonad.Config.Desktop
import XMonad.Util.SpawnOnce

baseConfig = desktopConfig

main = xmonad baseConfig {
   borderColor = "#ff2037" -- not a hook
  ,startupHook = startupHook baseConfig <+> spawnOnce "urxvt"

(You may also make it the first item in a composeAll for the manageHook, or use Haskell's do notation for most other hooks.)

This ensures that you don't skip anything needed by the base configuration. The consistent use of baseConfig means you only need to change the definition of baseConfig in order to switch to a different base, e.g. defaultConfig for basic ICCCM compliance or xfceConfig to integrate with an existing XFCE session.

See XMonad.Doc.Configuring for more information on customizing an xmonad configuration.

WARNING: DO NOT use the following config! It is an example of how to override everything — and does so by overriding everything. Which, among other things, means you won't be able to (usefully) upgrade xmonad, because even if the config works with the new version, it probably wipes out the changes with frozen old versions.
