How to compute the SHA256 hash for a new Nix package?

How does one find the sha256 of a new package?

I read that I should put a garbage sha256 into my package file, build it, and nix will report the correct sha256 I should use.

I put sha256 = "01ba4719c80b6fe911b091a7c05124b64eeece964e09c058ef8f9805daca546b" into my package file as the garbage sha256.

When I built the package, the error reports:

How to generate a self-signed SAN SSL/TLS certificate using openssl

How to generate a self-signed SAN SSL/TLS certificate using openssl

Generating a self-signed certificate is a common taks and the command to generate one with openssl is well known and well documented. Generating a certificate that includes subjectAltName is not so straght forward however. The following example demonstrates how to generate a SAN certificate without making a permanent change to the openssl configuration.

Generate a list of all required DNS names, (Note: CN will be discarded).

$ export SAN="DNS:www.domain.localdomain,DNS:domain.localdomain"
You can’t perform that action at this time.
