    You can also just install flakes doing nix profile install . I wrote a tool to make it a bit easier, npt but it's completely optional. Once you install the packages with nix profile. Then in your repos you can use a flake with a devShell and run nix develop. Check https://flake.parts to write your flakes.

    Definitely use flakes from the get-go. It's much more sane. Nix's documentation can be unorganized, but read through it when you can. Modules and other projects tend to have their own documentation as well, like Home Manager and flake-parts

    Some flake libraries are unnecessarily complicated or obscure, and that might be another concern. Imo flake-utils and flake-utils-plus are fine on that front, but flake-parts is the clear winner among frameworks/libraries for writing flakes concisely.
