A powerful package manager for Linux and other
Unix systems that makes package management reliable and reproducible.
Share your development and build environments across different machines.
A Linux distribution with a unique approach to
package and configuration management. Built on top of the Nix package
manager, it is completely declarative, makes upgrading systems reliable,
and has many other advantages.
Nix builds packages in isolation from each other. This ensures that they
are reproducible and don't have undeclared dependencies, so if a
package works on one machine, it will also work on another.
Nix makes it trivial to share development and build
environments for your projects, regardless of what programming
languages and tools you’re using.
Nix ensures that installing or upgrading one package cannot
break other packages. It allows you to roll back to
previous versions, and ensures that no package is in an
inconsistent state during an upgrade.
