Faster module tests with Facter 4 and rspec-puppet
6 projects | dev.to | 22 Jan 2022
We started by decoupling Puppet from Facter as much as we could, introducing the possibility of having multiple Facter backends. While Puppet would use the default Facter implementation when running on its own, external users would be able to define and pass their own Facter implementation when initializing Puppet, similar to how puppetserver configures Puppet to use its JRuby-compliant HTTP client.
Home Manager using Nix
3 projects | reddit.com/r/linuxquestions | 4 Jul 2022
The other resource to look at is Home manager. It’s a library for Nix to manage user configuration. It not only manages your settings, but keeps everything together in one unified language. For example, I can edit one file and adjust my system colours across all my applications.
Midlevel to advanced user looking to stay all open source for desktop

I don't recommend jumping directly to NixOS/Guix, instead install Nix/Guix (the package manager) on an existing system with home-manager or whatever the Guix equivalent is, and start managing your user configuration with it. Then when you switch to the full distro you are already familiar with the concepts and you can plug in your working user config.

Another option would be home-manager, which uses nix package manager.

Building a home server on NixOS
2 projects | reddit.com/r/homelab | 22 Jun 2022
I've been using nixos on my main workstation for the past 3 ish years with no issues. Certain niche window managers were not available back in the day, but nowadays almost everything is there (see nixpkgs on repology) and works flawlessly. To answer your question, home-manager can help you configure desktop apps using nix, and since nix doesn't have to be on NixOS, you can always use it on foreign distros or MacOS.

I'll keep using Solus as is, I already prefer using Home Manager for extra packages, so at least that is covered. It isn't completely smooth experience, but manageable.

In Home Manager, why use a module instead of a package and config file?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/NixOS | 14 Jun 2022
With Home Manager, I can do the same as I would on Arch, but I can also instead use a module: https://github.com/nix-community/home-manager/blob/master/modules/programs/kitty.nix
1 project | reddit.com/r/NixOS | 8 Jun 2022
The nix-channel --add https://github.com/nix-community/home-manager/archive/master.tar.gz home-manager commands have a # before the prompt, which means it should be ran as root.
