How can I find out the package of a derivation?
so this made it to the frontpage of HN
people are apparently using Nix to create development sandboxes for their haskell projectz
I'm wondering how to do the same with Guix, for any language not just Haskell. it seems useful but I don't know how to translate the Nix stuff to Guix, or if its even possible right now.
davexunit: they're using cabal (a package manager for Haskell packages) definitions, and converting it to nix, so you can just write the package definitions in Guix instead
davexunit: and then they use nix-shell and nix-repl, AFAIK there's no substitutes in Guix ATM, so the best you can do is make a qemu image or fill a wish at bug-guix
alirio: thanks. I expected that nix-shell had no equivalent.
