  • Home-manager as NixOS module or as standalone?
    2 projects | /r/NixOS | 10 Dec 2023
    Is this an example of what you mean (home-manager is defined as part of the flake): https://github.com/Misterio77/nix-starter-configs/blob/main/minimal/flake.nix
  • What is the current recommended documentation when starting out with NixOs?
    3 projects | /r/NixOS | 8 Dec 2023
    All the resources mentioned in other comments are pretty good, but mostly they are unofficial. The official NixOS wiki is very outdated and unmaintained. You will have better luck reading other people’s configurations, nixpkgs source code and GitHub issues. For the nix language the official wiki is a nice reference https://nixos.org/manual/nix/stable/language/index.html. This configuration is a great starting point https://github.com/Misterio77/nix-config for learning by example. It covers most of what you may need, although bootstrapping your own config is quite rough. You may want to take a look at https://github.com/Misterio77/nix-starter-configs. It’s very basic and should be simple to understand and improve.
  • GNOME on NixOS

    Another good option: https://github.com/Misterio77/nix-starter-configs

    I started with this one, the minimal version, then moved on to something more like the standard version, and now I'm moving on to something based on his much more complicated and flexible build in a different repo. I had been flailing, then this repo made it click.

  • How to install Gnome with PKG overlay
    1 project | /r/NixOS | 27 Oct 2023
    Hi all, I'd like to install Gnome using the unstable overlay; I used https://github.com/Misterio77/nix-starter-configs as a template, my sistem is on the stable source and I install packages from the unstable branch using "unstable.pkg". Given that Gnome is installed by
  • NixOS and Flakes Book: An unofficial book for beginners (free)
    6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 9 Oct 2023
    So, it took me an inordinate amount of effort to get to this point, but I find managing my nixos laptop to be idiotically easy now. And, to be clear, I'm not a developer. I just want an easy to use config that I can port over to a new laptop when the time is right (and maybe port a similar config over to my desktop as well, once I get around to installing NixOS).

    It's very weird, because I went from "WHY IN GOD'S NAME WOULD ANYONE WANT THIS?" to "my life is now measurably better" over the span of about 48 hours, and I have no idea what clicked. Something about adding flakes to the mix (NixOS + HM + flakes) broke the logjam. Or maybe it was simply how damned useful this config was to learn from:

    https://github.com/Misterio77/nix-starter-configs

    I went from that to a per-user, per-machine (with defaults for each) config in about an hour, and I haven't fundamentally changed that setup since. I have no idea why it's so compelling to me, but the combination of being able to tell the machine how to configure itself in one place with the ease of adding software ... I'm going to spin up a config this weekend and put it on my kid's laptop. There are other tools to accomplish the same thing, but NixOS is just so easy ... and poorly documented ... and has weird CLI conventions ... and doesn't do a super job of garbage control ... and

  • Flake + Disko + nixos-install
    1 project | /r/NixOS | 19 Sep 2023
    Hi, I created a new Flake based on Misterio77's template, then added Disko to it, as explained here. I also set disko.enableConfig = false; as they say is necessary when running from Installer.
  • Really confused about Hyprland, flakes and home-manager
    4 projects | /r/NixOS | 7 Jul 2023
    I just went on this journey last weekend! It was a rough start but I started to feel a lot more productive when I found this guide on flakes and also used this repo as a starting template.
