My NixOS Configuraton File

This is my NixOS setup to manage multiple computers with a home-manager config structure using nix flakes.

Current Desktop Screenshots:




Multiple NixOS configurations: desktop, laptop, and hopefully a test server and eventually a full transition over from my Ubuntu server.

How to:

  1. NixOS Installation

    1. Install NixOS on a computer using the default Gnome installer from [].
    2. Clone this repository [] in the `/home/<username>/ directory.
    3. Update the subdirectories in `hosts` and `users`.

      1. Copy the `configuration.nix` and `hardware-configuration.nix` files from the `/etc/nixos` directory and move them to `hosts/PLACE(local OR remote)/NEW_PC_NAME`.
      2. Rename `configuration.nix` to `default.nix` and, update `flake.nix` located in the top directory, link the appropriate modules to be used.
      3. Segment out items from new `default.nix` to appropriate `.nix` files.
      4. Make sure the correct version of NixOS is listed in the appropriate files.
    4. `flake.nix` is where `.nix` files are imported with further instructions on declared packages and modules.

      1. Declare packages either globally under `/hosts/<location>/hostname/packages.nix` or `/users/<username>/home-manager.nix`.
    5. Rebuild NixOS (<hostname> must be include the first time rebuilding, after the first rebuild, .# can be used and the system will know which hostname is to be used)

      1. `nix flake update && nixos-rebuild switch flake .#<hostname>`
    6. Push the updated git files to the repository so that they can be pulled, and the system rebuilt during the next update.


  1. See `/config/.bashrc` for `alias`: `flkup` using `sudo nixos-rebuild switch flake .#<hostname>` commands and other useful items
