> Channels are, AFAIU, a reference to some point-in-time/commit/version of nixpkgs
It's not specifically nixpkgs, but any Nix code generally.
Per the Nix manual:
> Channels are a mechanism for referencing remote Nix expressions and conveniently retrieving their latest version.
e.g. home-manager's suggested channel is just the github tarball for the relevant branch:
nix-channel --add https://github.com/nix-community/home-manager/archive/master.tar.gz home-manager

Need help on home manager neovim config
2 projects | /r/NixOS | 11 Sep 2023
I'm using flakes and home manager and not really sure how to go about managing my neovim configuration. I've read through some other posts, github issues, and various articles trying to suss out a good way to do this. Reading through other people's configs and posts was somewhat helpful but there is a lot going on I don't understand and everyone's examples I've seen vary wildly.
I want to like NixOS but... I can't and I need some help

I can't answer all your questions, but home-manager does have a dconf module that would probably be better to use than that external tool. Everything inside the options block are the things you can pass to the dconf module.
Silverblue users: why?

This is indeed a blind spot. Thanks for pointing that out! Silverblue -to my knowledge- doesn't do a lot to address this. Though, 3rd-party tools like Home Manager and the suite of applications developed by the folks over at uBlue might be able to limit this to a minimum. Though I'm not sure if it surpasses NixOS in this regard; for the uninitiated. Though, to my knowledge, this requires special attention and depends on the specifics of the NixOS system in question.

I have a few beginner question, what is the difference between nix shell/env and what is the difference between flakes/home-manager?

home-manager is a tool to manage your home with modules. It is like NixOS but for your home. It doesn't really have much to do with flakes except that you can use it with flakes.

By default, you can just configure everything in your profile the way you would in a normal Linux distro (dotfiles). The only exception is /etc (you need to manage those files from NixOS options). However, if you want to use Nix for your dotfiles, you can use home-manager.
What is the difference between NixOS and any other distro running the nix package manager?
