    My personal dev envs using nix

    Fast, Declarative, Reproducible, and Composable Developer Environments

    However, has a much better and cleaner underlying design, as well as easier UX/DX, and has been gaining feature at high-speed, so I'm working on migrating to it to simplify the maintenance.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • nixos-config

    My NixOS configurations.

    I have a NixOS dev environment in a VM which I built based on Similar to that setup, I use Flakes for my main configuration, and use home-manager to install + configure dev tools that I want available across multiple projects

  • devbox

    Instant, easy, and predictable development environments

    For individual project, I've used Devbox to quickly setup development shells, or install project specific packages and runtimes. It's a bit lighter weight then Flakes if you want to set up a bunch of projects (Disclosure: I work on the team behind Devbox).
