Declarative developer environments.

Our review

What we like

Wraps around Nix to provide declarative developer environments. Automatically activates environments when entering the directory. Manages scripts, Git hooks, running services, containers. Supports tests & process management. Environments per directory can be imported into a main environment in monorepos.

What we don't like

Doesn’t support building containers on macOS - must connect to a remote Linux builder.
