The NixOS Wiki is a community-run project to document the Nix Ecosystem. NixOS is a Linux distribution which is created with the Nix package manager as its foundation. NixOS relies upon the extensive Nixpkgs package repository, which is one of the largest and most up-to-date package sources in the Linux world. The Nix ecosystem also includes tools like Hydra, for continuous integration testing, and NixOps, for deploying NixOS machines to networks and clouds (e.g. EC2, GCE, and Azure).


The original NixOS wiki was shut down.

We felt that the NixOS manual, Nixpkgs manual, Nix manual, are all excellent but not the medium of choice for many situations.

The nix-users Wiki was too limiting with regards to wiki features, so we set up this wiki.
