Nix Pills


When starting a new Pill, comment on the tracking issue which one you're doing. If you need help, ask there. If you make progress but don't finish in one go, make a PR anyway! I'm trying to not edit things as I go, in order to not get bogged down.

How I've built and tested:

nix-build release.nix && firefox result/share/doc/nix-pills/index.html

Emacs config for a nice docbook experience:

 pkgs = import <nixpkgs> {};
 inherit (pkgs) emacsPackagesNg docbook5 writeText;

 schemas = writeText "schemas.xml" ''
   <locatingRules xmlns="">
     <documentElement localName="section" typeId="DocBook"/>
     <documentElement localName="chapter" typeId="DocBook"/>
     <documentElement localName="article" typeId="DocBook"/>
     <documentElement localName="book" typeId="DocBook"/>
     <typeId id="DocBook" uri="${docbook5}/xml/rng/docbook/docbookxi.rnc" />

in emacsPackagesNg.emacsWithPackages (epkgs: [
 (emacsPackagesNg.trivialBuild {
   pname = "nix-docbook-mode";
   version = "1970-01-01";
   src = writeText "default.el" ''
     (eval-after-load 'rng-loc
       '(add-to-list 'rng-schema-locating-files "${schemas}"))
     (global-set-key (kbd "<C-return>") 'nxml-complete)

Then you can use the keys:

  • C-c C-b to finish & close a tag
  • C-c C-f to close a tag
  • C-return to auto-complete a tag or attribute.
