  • Why you don't need flake-utils
    4 projects | /r/NixOS | 21 May 2023
    Pinning can be done without flakes, be it manually or with codegen (nvfetcher)
  • Accessing contents of non-flake repo input to a flake?

    You should instead use the regular fetchGit, fetchFromGitHub etc. fetchers in fairly vanilla code, and yes, that often means dealing with checksums in some form. If you truly just want to yeet the latest revision into place no matter what it is, there are ways to automate that still, such as berberman/nvfetcher, or Mic92/nix-update.
  • Will you move from Packer to Lazy ?
    8 projects | /r/neovim | 5 Feb 2023
    Yes, however one downside is that, afaik, the inputs are downloaded eagerly, not lazily. Alternatively there are things like nix-update and nvfetcher.

    The fetcher for this is https://github.com/berberman/nvfetcher. And if you want to simply map all the sources to extension packes, you could use http://github.com/divnix/devos-ext-lib and follow the readme. This is how I do it.
  • Nix flake of Vim/Neovim plugins, part of them are auto-generated from Awesome Neovim
    7 projects | /r/NixOS | 28 Dec 2021
    I have been using https://github.com/berberman/nvfetcher to automatically fetch all 1400-something VS Code extensions that are available on https://open-vsx.org . The changes haven't been uploaded yet but it will come up in a few hours. Check out https://github.com/danielphan2003/nixpkgs for my list of package sources.

    It has support for passthru so you can expose description, homepage and other meta attributes. You (currently) can't directly pass a attribute set to the nix source because nvfetcher is using string interpolation to generate it, so only string is allowed. There is a tracking issue for this: github.com/berberman/nvfetcher/issues/40. For now, you can use mapAttrs sources (sources = import ./_sources/generated.nix { inherit (final) fetchurl fetchgit fetchFromGitHub; }) to generate the appropriate meta from passthru.
