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

    Some specific ones I really like:

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

    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!

    I was a complete Nix beginner three months ago and thought Nix was terribly complicated and unnecessary. Glad to say I was wholly wrong and the transition was not that bad.

    NixOS me provision my servers from scratch to functional file/media/home automation server in about 15 minutes using an entirely automated Nix installation process. It’s a beautiful OS for servers
