    Project mention: Need your help with planing this project: continues laptop backup & recovery | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 2022-05-13

    Basically, I manage my MBP with Nix, particularly nix-darwin and home-manager. The setup.sh script bootstraps everything, including installing Nix and enabling my various configurations. Dotfiles are managed with chezmoi. I test the script against macOS VMs to verify it works.

  • nix-darwin

    nix modules for darwin

  • nix-config

    :space_invader: NixOS configuration (by gvolpe)

    Project mention: Nix-GUI: Make NixOS usable for non-technical users through settings / GUI | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-10

    I think NixOS would benefit from easily accessible collection of opinionated modules/profiles/configurations with minimal set of options. Something like gnome-desktop / sway-desktop / etc. Gnome actually does pretty good job here.

    The point is: currently my NixOS and Home Manager configurations have over 2k LOC total. When you search for configurations on GitHub/Google you are likely to find complex ones. For example, quick search for "nixos gnome" (Google) gives me link to NixOS Wiki (which describes only Gnome part) and blog post (https://gvolpe.com/blog/gnome3-on-nixos/) which is useful but links to really huge configuration (https://github.com/gvolpe/nix-config) that is overwhelming to any beginner.

    Great example of such approach is nixos-hardware (https://github.com/NixOS/nixos-hardware) which provides one-line configuration covering hardware quirks.

    Project mention: Flake structure for multi system | reddit.com/r/NixOS | 2021-11-08

    I work in the game industry... and that means one things... WINDOWS 🤮. I user nixos on my laptops. This meant that my nix configuration defined both `nixosSystem` and `homeManagerConfiguration`. I would use wsl on windows as much as I could. My current flake structure was modeled from [@davidwco](https://github.com/davidtwco/veritas) and [@hlissner](https://github.com/hlissner/dotfiles).
