How do I add a nix file to a repl in another language?

I'm trying to use nix to install a package (rustup) in my Rust repl and I've tried adding a replit.nix file with the following code:

{ pkgs }: {
deps = [
pkgs.cowsay
pkgs.rustup
];
}

I'm not sure how to run the nix file from this point though. I tried using cowsay and I tried using rustup in the shell and both are saying the command doesn't exist. What do I need to do to get this thing to run?

This post was from 4 months ago. Look at the website that RoBlockHead linked, almost all Repls run on Nix now. If you create a Repl with one of the languages, it will run on Nix.
