  • There's a gitlab repo for "hack" for fprintd (here), but you are right the aur package points to a non-existent link.

  • NUR

    Nix User Repository: User contributed nix packages [maintainer=@Mic92]

    So first, I'm a bit confused about AUR. I'm not aware of what you're describing. I heard about AUR-like repo for Nix (called NUR https://github.com/nix-community/NUR).

  • nixpkgs

    Nix Packages collection & NixOS

    Third benefit in that use case is that it's very simple to patch up existing app. For example related to fprintd which you mentioned, the standard definition how to build is this: https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/blob/master/pkgs/tools/security/fprintd/default.nix

  • nixos-generators

    Collection of image builders [maintainer=@Lassulus]

    If you need to generate lxc container in NixOS then perhaps this repo might be useful: https://github.com/nix-community/nixos-generators this article uses it https://www.thedroneely.com/posts/running-nixos-linux-containers/

  • repology-updater

    Repology backend service to update repository and package data

    I believe it likely was a comparision in number of packages, currently nixpkgs outnumber AUR (although it also contains packages that are part of other languages): https://repology.org/
