Top 5 Nix Template Projects

  • plutus-starter

    A starter project for Plutus apps

    Project mention: Support for M1 Chip | | 2022-07-04

    This is pretty bad advice - you might not need a node to write dapps, but you'll sure as hell want a local Plutus dev environment for the smoothest experience. Take it from someone with an M1 - the setup process is a pain, compile times are poor, and it'll be difficult to get your language server up and running for proper syntax highlighting. Some repos like don't seem to work even when Nix is configured to run it on Rosetta 2. Like the other commenter, I've resigned myself to ssh tunneling into a development Linux NUC, which has its own annoyances.

    Simple and documented config templates to help you get started with NixOS + home-manager + flakes. All the boilerplate you need!

    Project mention: Building a highly optimized home environment with Nix | | 2022-09-15

    Project mention: How to code, build, and deploy from an iPad using Gitlab and Gitpod | | 2022-04-18

    Geoff here from Gitpod. Compsci is an area where Gitpod really shines because it enables you to share whatever you are hacking on without subjecting who you are sharing it with, with the burden of installing dependencies.

    Thus, yes, indeed Haskell and SBCL or anything works exceptionally well. Here’s NixOS running on Gitpod btw
