The only dependency is nix, so make sure you have it installed.
If you currently don't have flakes setup, you can utilize the digga shell to pull the template:
nix-shell "https://github.com/divnix/digga/archive/main.tar.gz" \ --run "nix flake init -t github:divnix/digga"
If you already have flakes support, you can directly pull the template:
nix flake init -t github:divnix/digga
Then make sure to create the git repository:
git init git add . git commit
nix-shell to get to an interactive shell with all the
dependencies, including the unstable nix version required. You can run
confirm that you are using digga (expected output includes [docs], [general
commands], [linter], etc.).
In addition, the binary cache is added for faster deployment.
- Flakes ignore files that have not been added to git, so be sure to stage new files before building the system.
- You can choose to simply clone the repo with git if you want to follow upstream changes.
- If the
nix-shell -p cachix --run "cachix use nrdxp"line doesn't work you can try with sudo:
sudo nix-shell -p cachix --run "cachix use nrdxp"
