  • Home Manager using Nix

    Manage a user environment using Nix [maintainer=@rycee]

    You might want to use nix (the package manager from NixOS) with flakes or niv (to pin your inputs), using home-manager to configure emacs and maybe use rycee's emacs-init module.

  • nur-combined

    A repository of NUR that combines all repositories [maintainer=@Mic92]

    You might want to use nix (the package manager from NixOS) with flakes or niv (to pin your inputs), using home-manager to configure emacs and maybe use rycee's emacs-init module.

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • emacs-overlay

    Bleeding edge emacs overlay [maintainer=@adisbladis]

    Depending on your goals, emacs-overlay is also worth a look.

  • elpaca

    An elisp package manager

    Elpaca has the elpaca-fetch command for this purpose. It fetches a package repository and will display the commit log. Each commit hash is a button which will open a magit diff view if magit is installed. It could very easily be extended to work with vc, ediff, etc. Here's a screenshot of what the update log looks like:
