NixPM - First Repl.it Nix Package Manager!
Welcome to NixPM!
NixPM is a new package manager to handle Nix packages on Nix repls!
NixPM currently runs on the command line, using the command
nixpm which will be on your path once you compile.
Since it installs directly on your path, you will have to build every time you reload, but to build, simply use the following shell command:
Then, you can run
nixpm --help and start using NixPM!
NixPM can also be found on GitHub at https://github.com/AmazingMech2418/NixPM
Is it problematic that I have no idea what "nix" is.....?
and also sorry NPM already exists otherwise you could have used that.
Awesome! I think Replit is moving away from Polygott and into Nix, so that's also really cool
@DynamicSquid Thank you! Yeah, I think so too! It would definitely help ease their server load at least! LOL! But there are some languages that will need to stay or be made Polygott currently due to compatibility issues (for example, Ada doesn't work in Nix), but otherwise, I think Nix is the future of Repl.it!
