NixOS Installer Ideas
I recently installed NixOS from scratch on a new device and since I haven’t needed to do this in 1.5 years I forgot the sequence needed and made a whole bunch of mistakes.
It would be nice to be able to improve the experience and guide the user. On the other end of the installer UX are assisted installers which often use insecure defaults (e.g. for partitioning, or default passwds, etc).
nixos-help is potentially a valuable tool here but the documentation could use some attention in terms of organization, flow, and ensuring the documentation is updated to the current release of NixOS it is shipped with.
