User Interface


The menu has now been rearranged, as discussed on the github issue.

The next steps:

  1. write up the category pages under resources in a standardized way
  2. add a bunch of links to articles we wanna have but don't have (getting started guides for everything, for example)
  3. flesh out the Contributing to the Wiki page and Main Page to be more welcoming and clear

After this is done, it should be very easy for people to contribute.

Graphic design


I think it would be great to use some non-standard theme, to differentiate the wiki and make it our own.

I have been looking into bootstrap themes that are being maintained and found Chameleon.


The favicon seems to have a black background on my machine, which makes it look quite terrible. This can be solved by using the same one uses. We might also considering making our favicon a bit different, it can be nice for those of us who like their bookmark bars filled with distinct icons and no text.

I believe this has been fixed with yesterday. We now link to a png version

<link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.png"/>

Welcome to the unofficial user's wiki

This wiki is an unofficial addition for the NixOS project.

This wiki is user-maintained. Take a look at the about page for more informations.

The NixOS Wiki is running alongside the NixOS project supported manuals. It is driven and maintained by its users. Of course the developers are also invited to contribute. The NixOS Wiki wants to be a way for creating, sharing and completing content "How to use NixOS!" next to the official resources.
