  • Bluetooth headphones problem
    2 projects | | 8 Jun 2022
    I can't remember why I put that workaround in there, might not be needed any more. The above config is part of my dotfiles, I use my Bose blueutooth headphones by connecting them via the blueman-applet if the don't pair automatically
  • NixOS for selfhosting?
    4 projects | | 22 Sep 2021
    Yep, I have two different modules with defaults for server and for desktop. Host-specific settings are set in the according /machines//configuration.nix file. Most stuff is modularized into modules that can be reuesed and enabled at will.

  • Nix-rice: rice your system with nix
    3 projects | | 15 Sep 2021
    Yep, I'm using the toJSON function already. The problem I had, was that not all applications use JSON as configuration format. Also the nix code gets very long, if you have to write the whole template as a string, which I find quite unreadable. Mustache is a pretty simple frequently used templating language, here is an example template that get's rendered by the nix code above.

    My system uses a uniform colorscheme defined here. Configs for all applications I use read that and use the same colors. The wallpapers are randomly generated by a tool I wrote, it also automatically matches the colorscheme. Icons and symbols are colored the same way for awesomeWM.
  • My neovim config with a colorscheme created with nix

    In case you are interested I use this and this to generate colorschemes, awesome config and a matching wallpaper
  • Dumping Tmux
    3 projects | | 7 Jul 2021
    Check out wezterm it has replaced tmux for me. Very active development, fast and just the right amount of features for my taste. It is configured in Lua, so if you are doing that for neovim already, it's another plus. I use it in combination with awesomeWM. My (not very special) config is here if you need something to start with.
  • Is anyone else trying to decide between only using NixOS on a server, using it on all your computers, and not using it all?
    4 projects | | 4 Jul 2021
    What I mean by that is: I have all my configs tracked in a git repository. It is faster to hack something together on a different distro, but if I get it working on nixos and add it to my configuration repository, it wont magically break. It is reproducible and versioned, with rollbacks to any version always possible. You will have to decide if that is worth the effort for yourself, I personally have no problem investing a bit more time on the initial configuration of a service or a custom module knowing it is a piece of configuration I can always reliably reuse and build upon. Just my two cents.
