    My Nix system configs! (by malob)

    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:

    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!
