Welcome to the Documentation SIG

Aux has excellent ideas, and we want people to understand them. People have struggled with learning Nix, so we’d love to have an extensive set of docs and guides to refer to when you get stuck!

  • We think it’s important for documentation to be a focus from the outset
  • We’d like to look at what worked for Nix and what didn’t; work closely with other teams, particularly where those teams have user-facing concerns, and make some documentation that is understandable no matter your experience level
  • We’d like to avoid you needing to read the source to use Nix packages and options
  • We want to make an on-ramp to get new users understanding and loving nix!
