Developing with Nix

This has been moved to the Matrix AI blog: https://matrix.ai/2018/03/24/developing-with-nix/

Note that if you just to compile a simple C program, and you don't want to fiddle with environments:

nix-shell --packages stdenv

That's enough to enter an environment with stdenv.

I've read only the Python section. You may want to add

unset SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH

to shellhook, because otherwise pip can fail with Zip error (NixOS/nixpkgs@6f1551d)

@danbst Doesn't that link say to set SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH to an actual date somewhere?

Also I haven't finished this gist.

@danbst You are right. You do need unset SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH in the shellHook for Python packages.
