Anthony Wang edited this page 4 months ago

Nix is a purely functional package manager that exozyme users can use to install packages.

Configuration

Run

nix-channel --add https://nixos.org/channels/nixpkgs-unstable
nix-channel --update

to configure a channel (repository).

Now add the ~/.nix-profile/bin directory to your $PATH. For Fish, you can do this with fish_add_path ~/.nix-profile/bin.

Usage

You can install packages with nix-env --install. nix-env --query lists all directly installed packages and nix-env --uninstall will remove a package.

Check out this guide for setting up a development environment.
