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.
Console is the place developers go to find the best tools. Each week, our weekly newsletter picks out the most interesting tools and new releases. We keep track of everything - dev tools, devops, cloud, and APIs - so you don't have to.
