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 -m init
To drop into a nix-shell, if you don't have flakes setup, use the digga shell to create a
nix-shell "https://github.com/divnix/digga/archive/main.tar.gz" \ --run "nix flake lock"
Or if you do have flakes support, just run:
nix flake lock
nix-shell to get to an interactive shell with all the dependencies, including the unstable nix
version required. You can run
menu to 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"
