Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Incremental Builds for Haskell with Bazel
7 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 23 Jun 2022
I migrated a mid-size polyglot project from Makefiles to Bazel and C++ was a large component of the project.
1. Building with QT5 MOC & UI files. There is a great library for it but it has hardcoded paths to the QT binaries and header files assuming a system-wide installation. I had to patch the rule to point to our QT location. Then it worked fine.
2. There is no rule to build a fully static library. Since we were shipping a static library in our Makefile system, that was somewhat annoying.
3. We were using system links like `$PROJECT_ROOT/links/GCC/vX.Y.Z/ -> /opt/gcc/...` to point to all the build tools, but these didn't work in Bazel I think because it required absolute paths for any binaries it calls. We ended up putting them in a .bazelrc but we would need a different one for Windows and Linux.
4. Not good integration with IDEs
Ultimately we did not keep using Bazel because we were building Python binaries and py_binary was too slow on Windows. And we didn't have enough time to write a PyInstaller rule.
Is NixOS a sustainable distribution?
1 project | reddit.com/r/NixOS | 14 Aug 2022
That's unfortunately true. I think, depending on the use-case, NixOS is secure enough as a desktop operating system, but it still lacks secureboot and selinux support for example. On the other hand, many modules are written security-concious authors (e.g. the github-runner module that makes sure the service runs with as few privileges as possible, unlike upstream))
`nixos-rebuild switch --upgrade` failed: "the following units failed: wpa_supplicant-wlp5s0.service"

I'm not sure. It depends on why exactly it's causing an error. I can see that the wpa_supplicant config file generation was improved in September but idk how to stitch together a situation where wpa_supplicant booted on 21.05 and then tries to run on 22.05. And that would really only be useful once, so might as well go straight to the reboot step.
Can someone please apply a similar patch to urweb?

Gentoo Users: What are your thoughts on NixOS? Have you used it before? How do you think it compares to Gentoo?

This bug specifically was the one I ran into. A few gtk apps were all failing with the error GLib-GIO-ERROR **: No GSettings schemas are installed on the system I remember gramps was one of them, but don't recall which others.
What packages are you missing in nixpkgs?

I'd like my PR to be either closed or merged at some point :(

I haven't tried it myself yet, but actually it seems that blesh was added to nixpkgs unstable just recently. https://search.nixos.org/packages?channel=unstable&show=blesh&from=0&size=50&sort=relevance&type=packages&query=blesh https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/pull/181963
Our Roadmap for Nix

> It feels more like I am reverse engineering something rather than using it.
Consider this issue about improving the documentation for "mkShell", one of the most frequently used functions: https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/issues/58624
The documentation wasn't improved in the end, but the issue's creator learned to get his answers by reading the source code. In other words: reverse engineering.22 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 7 Aug 2022
The official installer leverages an initialization script, to be sourced at shell init time, which is written in POSIX shell. Fish can't just source it because it's not compatible with POSIX shell.
> I then searched the Internet and found a very "creative" workaround for Arch users that didn't work either.
Arch users shouldn't need anything special here.
You can use fenv¹ to source it, you can translate it to bash using babelfish, or you can exec into fish after running bash to log in (make sure to set $SHELL after if you choose that option). Just make sure you do it as early as possible if you want to use things installed by Nix in your other Fish config snippets.
I think Home Manager will also take care of this for you. (The other module systems, Nix-Darwin and NixOS, both do.)
If you wanna do it like NixOS does, you can install Fish via Nix and then create your own preinit environment script in /etc/fish. This has the advantage of setting up your Nix environment variables before any other config is sourced. You can take a look at it here, which also explains some of the Fish initialization process: https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/blob/master/nixos/modules/p...
and here's where the hooks go in the Fish package, where the comments describe the Fish initialization process in detail as well as why things are done this way on NixOS: https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/blob/master/nixos/modules/p...
