Easy PureScript Nix, NixOS Ready™

Build Status

Improvements welcomed, following two rules:


  1. Binary downloads, no rebuilding
  2. Should be easy to pull it from remote (could be improved, see remote-test.nix)

See the blog post about this here: https://qiita.com/kimagure/items/de2a4ff45dd8fe8be4b1

Example usage

This repository uses Easy-PureScript-Nix for its setup:



Thanks to Pekka (@kaitanie), we have things working on NixOS. So report issues if things are broken!

I (Justin) do not use NixOS, so these builds may require extra patching for consumption from NixOS.

Potential questions

Can I see an example of this at work?

I have a setup for react-basic-starter here: https://github.com/justinwoo/spacchetti-react-basic-starter

As usual, my vidtracker repo also has lots of usages: https://github.com/justinwoo/vidtracker/tree/f78b3df57eaf5b122f0a0b51cc4e3c246bf96f88

Porco zio, I love this. How do I install to my system from here?


> nix-env -f ~/Code/easy-purescript-nix/default.nix -iA inputs.dhall-simple
replacing old 'dhall-simple'
installing 'dhall-simple'

> which dhall

> dhall version

Or in your dotfiles instead:

  pkgs = import <nixpkgs> {};

  easyPS = import (pkgs.fetchFromGitHub {
    owner = "justinwoo";
    repo = "easy-purescript-nix";
    rev = "84723cd";
    sha256 = "1vid6djm64c4whyxsnpxr4s1j7x9fkiv456h3hxagq6z4jsrar71";
in {

Why not upstream purp and spacchetti-cli to nixpkgs?

Surely someone else will make a PR if they want it, but I am unlikely to use any nixpkgs version currently.
