  • nixfiles

  • I currently have a PC and a laptop, and I run NixOS on both. My config uses flakes https://github.com/freemagma/nixfiles, and I've done a lot of work making things portable between my two computers.

  • nixos-config

    KISS NixOS configuration based on Flakes & flake-parts (supports macOS too) (by srid)

  • In https://github.com/srid/nixos-config I share home-manager modules (everything under ./home/ basically) between NixOS and macOS.

  • InfluxDB

  • nixos-configs

    My NixOS and nix-darwin configs (by reckenrode)

  • There are my configs: https://github.com/reckenrode/nixos-configs.

  • digga

    A flake utility library to craft shell-, home-, and hosts- environments.

  • The digga library, while being more complex to use than other solutions here, got a pretty elegant solution for it merged a few weeks ago. Still some cracks that are getting smoothed over, but it seems to work.

  • nix-darwin

    nix modules for darwin

  • https://github.com/LnL7/nix-darwin allows system level management of macOS similar to NixOS. I use it to share a lot of config between NixOS and macOS. My config isn't public but there are plenty of examples out there for using it this way

  • dotfiles

    Configuration files (.emacs) (by acowley)

  • My take on this is not as polished as it could be, but works well for me.
