Builds for the pine64 soldering iron using NIx

I have began work on a project to automate builds of the pine64 soldering iron (pinecil), using nix. I am looking for feedback.
Here is the repository:


This is cool. Thanks for sharing it.

Being somewhat new to nix, it took me a bit to figure out how to use the repo. First, I had to cd into the ironos dir. I was expecting flake.nix to be at the root.

There is no default package. Using nix flake show revealed several outputs. nix build .#ironos-en started a build, and its still going. I assume result will point into a directory containing bits that can be pushed to a pinecil.


I just started a embedded page on and added the link. I hope that is OK.


That could prove quite useful. Thanks!
