 - [nix-freeze-tree](http://jackkelly.name/blog/archives/2020/01/25/nix-freeze-tree/index.html)

   `nix-freeze-tree` is a utility that walks a directory tree, and writes out Nix expressions which rebuild that tree. The generated expressions have two important properties:
    1. Each file in the tree is built by a separate fixed-output derivation, and
    2. Directories are built by derivations that symlink their contents recursively.
    If you are using `nix copy` to ship a derivation between nix stores, copying the derivation built by evaluating the output of `nix-freeze-tree` can reuse existing files in the destination store, as fixed-output derivations can be checked against a hash before copying.

- [Possible nixpkgs-based Google Summer of Code projects](http://big-data-biology.org/positions/gsoc-tweag/). We want to try to use nix(pkgs) to build perfectly reproducible environments in a context where the users wouldn’t even be aware that nix is a thing that exists (unless, obviously, they want to know). This is in the context of a bioinformatics application, written in Haskell, but the nixpkgs integration can be done without writing Haskell code ([NGLess](https://ngless.embl.de/))
