Documentation (+API) #19
Although current HTTP API is served at https://cachix.org/api/v1/ - it's not finalized. In following months I'd like to gather feedback and document in-depth how cachix works and how to integrate it into different services (Hydra, other CIs, etc).
I did not quite understand from the existing documentation, if a cachix Account is necessary for users which just want to use the cache and not push. (I sincerely hope, that this will not be necessary.)
In general I feel that the documentation should separate clearly between push and downloading, since the second use case might be far more frequent.
Just my 2 cents. Really great idea.
PS: I am a bit curious about funding for this project. If possible it would be nice, if that would be addressed somewhere.
Thanks for feedback.
Cachix account is only necessary for creating binary caches and pushing/copying to them. For using a public cache, there's no need to have cachix account. I'll make sure this is addressed.
Funding: it's not entirely clear at this stage, but I have plans to add support for private caches and possibly add some premium features. It depends on feedback from users, I'd like to find a balance for project to be sustainable but also serve the Nix community.
