  • nix

    Nix, the purely functional package manager

    If you put your flake in a Git repository, you can reference the repo without having to clone it by using a flake reference syntax. I keep my flake in GitHub, so I use github:reckenrode/nixos-configs to reference it when running nixos-rebuild, etc.
