Migrating to nix home-manager

Topics: nix, unix

I'm using Ubuntu LTS for some years now, coming from macOS with Homebrew beforehand.

Right now I'm switching parts of my setup to nix home-manager. Nix itself is a package manager and language to describe how to install packages. home-manager is a community project built on top of the language to describe the setup of a user (home).

This post will give a short overview of the benefits and my new setup. I'm still a beginner in the whole nix ecosystem. Still, I already enjoy it on a daily basis.
