    Instant, easy, and predictable development environments

    As part of the work we've been doing with [devbox](https://github.com/jetpack-io/devbox), we needed a unit testing framework to test some of our nix code. Unfortunately we had some use cases where we did *not* want to introduce a dependency on `nixpkgs` (and therefore we couldn't use `runTests`).

    A tiny unit testing framework written in pure Nix

    So we ended up writing [NixTest](https://github.com/jetpack-io/nixtest): a tiny unit testing framework, written in pure nix. It's completely self-contained and has no external dependencies (not even to `nixpkgs`).

  • 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.
