    direnv integration for emacs

    I have this but for flakes and it works perfectly. If you haven't found it yet use emacs-direnv. It will automatically switch the environment when changing directories. If I change something in a flake, I need to use the direnv-update-directory-enviornment to get it to change but other than that just change buffers and it will figure out if you're in a new directory environment or not.

  • envrc

    Emacs support for direnv which operates buffer-locally

    I am currently using envrc by Purcell, and it works like a charm. I once used direnv-mode, which should also work.

  • 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.

  • lorri

    Your project’s nix-env [maintainer=@Profpatsch,@nyarly] (by nix-community)

    I'm using lorri and emacs-direnv together, works perfectly fine for me.
