.envrc for Phoenix projects using Nix and PostgreSQL
####################################
# Environment setup for Nix shells #
####################################
# From https://github.com/direnv/direnv/wiki/Nix#persistent-cached-shell
#
# Usage: use_nix [...]
#
# Load environment variables from `nix-shell`.
# If you have a `default.nix` or `shell.nix` one of these will be used and
# the derived environment will be stored at ./.direnv/env-<hash>
# and symlink to it will be created at ./.direnv/default.
# Dependencies are added to the GC roots, such that the environment remains persistent.
#
# Packages can also be specified directly via e.g `use nix -p ocaml`,
# however those will not be added to the GC roots.
#
# The resulting environment is cached for better performance.
#
# To trigger switch to a different environment:
# `rm -f .direnv/default`
#
# To derive a new environment:
# `rm -rf .direnv/env-$(md5sum {shell,default}.nix 2> /dev/null | cut -c -32)`
#
# To remove cache:
# `rm -f .direnv/dump-*`
#
# To remove all environments:
# `rm -rf .direnv/env-*`
#
# To remove only old environments:
# `find .direnv -name 'env-*' -and -not -name `readlink .direnv/default` -exec rm -rf {} +`
