nixify

Helps bootstrapping an opinionated nix-shell environment by creating a minimal shell.nix file and setting up an auto-env configuration for it.

Installation

nixify can be installed via the Nix User Repository

$ nix-env -iA nur.repos.kampka.nixify

or

$ nix-shell -p nur.repos.kampka.nixify

or

{
    # /etc/nixos/configuration.nix
    environment.systemPackages = [
      kampka.nixify
    ];
}

Usage:

$ echo $PATH
