Setup nix, nix-darwin and home-manager from scratch on an M1 Macbook Pro
# I found some good resources but they seem to do a bit too much (maybe from a time when there were more bugs).
# So here's a minimal Gist which worked for me as an install on a new M1 Pro.
# Inspired by I highly recommend looking at malob's repo for a more thorough configuration
# Let's get started
# Let's install nix (at the time of writing this is version 2.5.1
curl -L | sh

View Fast user switching with Devise
Ever wondered how to login as another user within Devise?
Recently we had a feature request that would provide Admins with the ability
