Over the past few weeks I've been using CyanogenMod and I have loved the amount of customization and power that it allows it's users to gain over their device... It really does put the power back into the hands of the user! The only gripe that I have with CM-11 is that I would prefer a more 'barebones' experience... I'm not too keen on all of these CM applications that it comes pre-packed with.
To fix this I have made a quick flashable '.ZIP' package that will delete the following applications from your CM-11 OS and will replace CM's Trebuchet Launcher with the Nexus 5's Google Now Launcher:
The script removes these apps:The script adds these apps:

Recommended installation process:
1. Transfer "cm-11-*build_date*-*release_type*-hammerhead.zip
" and "CM-11-Barebones-Script.zip
" to your device...
2. Reboot to TWRP
3. Wipe "Dalvik Cache", "System", "Data" and "Cache".
4. Reboot "Recovery".
5. Install "cm-11-*build_date*-*release_type*-hammerhead.zip
6. Install "gapps-kk-20140105-signed.zip
7. Install "CM-11-Barebones-Script.zip
8. Reboot "System".
9. Enjoy CyanogenMod 11 'Barebones'.

Note: Every time you update your CyanogenMod to a new version (e.g. Nightly), you will need to repeat steps "7." to "9." of my "Recommended installation process", otherwise all of CM's stock apps will come back (not what we want)...
