Top 23 Nix home-manager Projects

  • nix-starter-configs

    Simple and documented config templates to help you get started with NixOS + home-manager + flakes. All the boilerplate you need!

  • Project mention: Home-manager as NixOS module or as standalone? | /r/NixOS | 2023-12-10

    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

  • nixos-config

    General purpose Nix configuration for macOS / NixOS with starter templates, step-by-step guides, and more ✨ (by dustinlyons)

  • Project mention: Going declarative on macOS with Nix and Nix-Darwin | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-15

    I’ve been using Nix directly on MacOS with minimal issues for a few years now. Works great.

    I hate using docker on Mac and have since replaced it with flakes and devenv.

    My configuration with a step by step guide (600+ stars): https://github.com/dustinlyons/nixos-config

  • impermanence

    Modules to help you handle persistent state on systems with ephemeral root storage [maintainer=@talyz]

  • Project mention: Ask HN: How to Manage Phones and PCs for Elderly Parents? | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-04-23

    You might want to set up NixOS with impermanence, with something like https://github.com/nix-community/impermanence. Install an easy to use desktop environment like ElementaryOS, and configure NixOS with or without Flatpak, if you want to give the user the ability to install new software or not. Then set up automatic updates, automatic garbage collection and you have a truly stable system.

  • nix-config

    :space_invader: NixOS configuration

  • dotfiles

    NixOS system config & Home-Manager user config (by fufexan)

  • Project mention: NixOS-generators – Collection of VM and Container disk image builders for NixOS | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-03-26

    I’ve found it most helpful to review other people’s configurations to learn Nix.

    Some specific ones I really like:

    https://github.com/malob/nixpkgs

    https://github.com/fufexan/dotfiles

    I keep a not comprehensive GitHub Stars list of Nix stuff I find here if you want more:

    https://github.com/stars/heywoodlh/lists/nix

    If you aren’t familiar, Nix-Darwin allows you to codify your MacOS deployments in a fashion comparable to NixOS. As a huge Nix-Darwin user myself, I have found malob’s repo extremely helpful for ideas with MacOS configuration. Nix-Darwin has made me so happy as a MacOS user. :)

    Some other unsolicited tips:

    1. Start with Nix flakes for configuration

    2. Invest in Home-Manager before NixOS or Nix-Darwin

    3. Ask people for help in Matrix or Discourse — my experience is that Nix-related folk are very welcoming and understanding

    Good luck!

  • Project mention: Dumb Question: How do I get a custom made ricing downloaded from the internet to work after "home-manager switch"? | /r/NixOS | 2023-11-03

    I've found this config which only uses home-manager and seems to deliver just what I need without much trouble. I already activated flakes and nix-command, initialized home-manager, cloned the repo and did "home-manager switch" upon it, which prompted a installation, everything seemed fine...but after either just restarting my laptop or rebuilding nixos and restarting my system remains the same (with KDE Plasma, nothing changed).
