Managed dev environments with nix.

Package Managers
Our review

What we like

Create & switch between isolated environments with all dependencies managed for you, powered by Nix. Abstracts away a lot of the hassle of using Nix. Makes it easy to deal with various platforms and CPU architectures. Easily bootstrap identical dev and prod environments. Can containerize any environment

What we don't like

Great if all the packages & dependency versions you need are already available on Nix. If not, Nix has a steep learning curve.
