#08 - Not all those who wander are lost
Not all those who wander are lost - J.R.R. Tolkien
Welcome to another edition of NixOS Weekly.
Major announcements include NixCon 2017 and the old wiki migration. This edition adds a new Tooling section for possibly useful Nix-related tools in addition to News, Jobs, Reading, and Events.
NixCon 2017 October 28-31, Munich.
Call for participation is open until July 31.
The Wiki is dead. Long live the Wikis!
This is the change that disable the wiki.
The old wiki has been for a while now with ongoing work on updating and migrating the content.
Current options are the Community Cookbook and the nixos-users Wiki. The latter is editable by anyone with a GitHub account.
Nix has a thankful community.
Profpatsch did some quick analysis of IRC messages. Summary:
- pnix-shell.sh: creates gc-roots for all dependencies of a shell.nix.
- nix-package-search: cached queries for nix-env -qa.
- nix-zsh-completions: ZSH completions for Nix and NixOS tools.
- Auto install/run missing programs.
Events / Meetups
NixOps Meetup May 26, Munich
Topics: the NixOps container backend. Possible hackathon afterwards.
This work would not be possible without the many contributions of the community.
