I recently started playing with nix.


  • automatically select correct python version per project
  • activating one doesn't bleed into the other

Installing nix

curl -L | sh

controlling nix-env

nix-env -iA nixpkgs.python310
nix-env -iA nixpkgs.python39
nix-env -iA nixpkgs.python38
nix-env -iA nixpkgs.python37

searching for packages

nix-env -qaP .\*python.\*

nix search nixpkgs python


nix-shell -p python39
