  • How to Learn Nix
    11 projects | | 22 Nov 2021
    I've been looking into Nix a lot lately (but have yet to take the leap - I'll probably start with devshell)

    But a couple of projects have come up lately that piqued my interest wrt syntax and alteratives (Since I am not sure about Scheme anymore than Nix (as a langauge) :-)

    An alternative to Nix that uses Starlark (python syntax) instead of a purely functional programming language:

    I struggled to climb the steep learning curve of Nix/NixOS and wondered what it would be like with a more familiar (to me) syntax.

    It's been very rewarding to write. I was able to implement some ideas from the initial Nix paper that aren't present in Nix. Nix is also quite dependent on the use of the /nix/store path, but I was able to allow a user to use almost any path for their build store without sacrificing on the potential for a shared build cache. I also want to have better native support for things like building docker images, among other features.

    I'm currently implementing sandboxing and finalizing some of the build structure, but hoping it'll be usable sometime soon.
