    Project mention: Michigan GOP infighting leads to actual fight between Karamo, DePerno ba... | /r/TRUTHsocialWatch | 2023-07-10

    Project mention: Looking for dotfiles repo examples | /r/NixOS | 2022-11-08

    Project mention: NixOS and Flakes Book | | 2023-10-02
  • fenix

    Rust toolchains and rust-analyzer nightly for Nix [maintainer=@figsoda] (by figsoda)

    Project mention: Use nix-shell or systemPackages | /r/NixOS | 2023-07-09

    Rustup works as is. Though note that Nix supplants all such toolchain installers such as Rustup, nvm, etc. I.e. instead of Rustup there is fenix.

    Project mention: [Question] When using flakes, can I remove all channels? | /r/NixOS | 2023-07-08

    You don't need channels to use nix-shell or nix-env. You can generate the Nix path and registry from your flake inputs. flake-utils-plus makes this easy with nix.generateRegistryFromInputs and nix.generateNixPathFromInputs.

    My NixOS dotfiles (by Mic92)

    Project mention: My First Impressions of Nix | | 2023-06-19
  • nixpkgs

    My Nix system configs! (by malob)

    Project mention: How do you set git in order to clone from private repo? | /r/NixOS | 2023-05-13

    I don't think system.autoUpgrade will work at all with flakes since you'd need to update your flake lock file for anything to get updated. I've seen a way to do that automatically with github actions here.

  • nixcfg

    NixOS and Home-Manager configs for my devices. dotfiles, but way better

    Project mention: NuShell: A New Type of Shell | | 2023-06-13

    I love nushell. Here's just a small sample: (cleans up finished GH Action runs)

    If nothing else, never having to use `jq` again is a huge QoL improvement.

  • nix-config

    ❄️ryan4yin's nix config(NixOS/macOS + home-manager + i3/hyprland + neovim + agenix) (by ryan4yin)

    Project mention: I finally understand the "I use Arch, btw" thing | /r/archlinux | 2023-08-22

    I've been trying to daily drive Linux for the past 2 months or so. Started out on EndeavourOS and didn't had any problems until I tried to make it useable in secure boot (I really want to play Valorant and not bother each time switching secure boot in bios) and failed miserably due to a combination of lack of knowledge and stupidity. I briefly tried NixOS and while this config is beautiful, I just didn't enjoy the way NixOs is customized.

  • neovim-flake

    Nix flake for neovim with configuration

    Project mention: 0.9.0, spent about 3 weeks rewriting my config | /r/neovim | 2023-02-10

    I spent quite a while trying to figure out how to fully package this thing as a flake such that you could just `nix run github:` to test it [like this repo](, though I never solved how to.

  • dotfiles

    Personal configuration files for my PC (by viperML)

    Project mention: Why you don't need flake-utils | /r/NixOS | 2023-05-21

    My server's repo and my dotfiles both use flake-parts, and you can do a github-grep to look for more.

    Project mention: Introducing agenix-rekey - Automatic secret generation and rekeying using a YubiKey or age master-identity | /r/NixOS | 2023-06-09

    Hi together! Today I want to share agenix-rekey with you all, which is an agenix extension that automates secret rekeying, and now also supports secret generation. It finally has reached a state where I am comfortable sharing it and I'd be very interested in your feedback or your own alternative approaches on solving this!

  • nix-stable-diffusion

    Project mention: XML is better than YAML | | 2023-09-20

    Sorry, didn't see this comment. It is here:

    In the `actions` directory is all the Nix files. There is some glue code in `lib/flakes` to generate the YAML files from Nix.
