Does Replit Nix even work?

Hello. I've been a user of Replit for over a year. I've been trying to get Java 16 with Nix, but it refuses to work. I've even followed the tutorial and it says that cowsay is not a registered command.

If you're doing something simple, yes. I've been using Replit for over a year and I've had to stop using it because many of my previous workflows or very specific set ups don't work. (Either the replit package list isn't update to the nix-os list or some functions like "nix search" simply don't work).

Nix in Replit still feels like a prematurely released alpha

Thanks for the reply, but I posted this 11 months ago. :)

I originally was confused because I thought Nix would work on any Repl type, and did not see the specific NixOS version. (This was before Nix was officially integrated into everything.)
