  • nix-1p

    A (more or less) one page introduction to Nix, the language.

    Project mention: pellets: manage your packages with a configuration file | | 2022-11-06

    Fair enough. I've also had a couple of programs which weren't packaged already, fortunately it's quite easy to do so most of the time (or to just fall back to a distrobox container or flatpak in the worst case). If you decide to try it out, nix-1p and Nix Pills were great resources for me to get familiar with Nix and NixOS in a short time-span.

  • crane

    A Nix library for building cargo projects. Never build twice thanks to incremental artifact caching.

    Project mention: Help with building a 32bit library with cargo | | 2023-04-07

  • nixpkgs

    My Nix system configs! (by malob)

    Project mention: How do you set git in order to clone from private repo? | | 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.
