  • Project mention: Going declarative on macOS with Nix and Nix-Darwin | | 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):

  • 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.

  • Project mention: minimal, fast prompt for any shell | | 2024-01-25

    If you use home-manager, installing starship is as simple as adding `programs.starship.enable = true;`.

    Incidentally, starship also gives a visual indication of whether you are in the nix shell or not, which is pretty handy when using direnv:

    I don't know. Have been using colorbuddy for ages now and it has always done exactly what I want. I don't need the "instant reaload" that lush advertices, doing :source on the colorscheme file, does the same for me to preview changes instantly. This is my theme, in case you need something to start with: -

  • Project mention: $Home, Not So Sweet $Home | | 2023-08-16

    For games, I think it's even worse on GNU/Linux systems, since most game developers mainly target Windows and sometimes completely ignore conventions for other platforms (possibly since some game engines have that "Build for Linux" button).

    This also applies to game engines and their own conventions. For example Unity has Application::persistentDataPath[1], which uses $XDG_CONFIG_HOME (still a bit meh, since I wouldn't treat savefiles as "config", but at least some convention). However, some games tend to write those into Application::dataPath[1] (or even other random directories they see fit), which is supposed to be read-only and could possibly be outside of $HOME.

    Fortunately the single one advantage of antivirus software out there seems to be that the above seems to break with some AV, so developers either tell their players to disable AV or they simply fix the issue. I made countless bug reports on this issue and so far it exclusively got fixed because of AV, so I'm using that as an argument for future reports.

    While at least most of the Unity games I've packaged seem to adhere to these conventions, other games and game engines are a mixed bag and I've seen games dumping their stuff into $PWD to games writing to Windows paths (eg. /home/foo/SomeVendor\Somegame).

    Patching these games is also very tedious, since some of them tend to get updates, so patching needs to be done in a way to be forward-compatible.

    For example here is a patcher I wrote to get Factorio to adhere to XDG:

    Here is an example for patching a Unity3d game that writes to Application::dataPath:
