Nix by example, Part 1: The Nix expression language
Nix is a package manager. ‘Nix’ is also the name of the programming language that it uses. The language can actually be used independently, without any package management at all. Here I show the Nix expression language by example. My approach is to introduce expanding subsets of the language: at any point you can stop reading and have a full understanding of the subset introduced up to that point.
