Great work @zimbatm as always
The idea is to get a new entry-point for visitors coming just for Nix.
Defining the audience here is most important, as it will limit the scope of the site. Currently it’s trying to convince the reader that Nix comes with batteries included and is production ready.
With that in mind, my feedback:
I wish we tracked these clicks, because I’m sure many people just fail to try Nix as noone knows they have to press “Get Nix” button twice. My recommendation would be to say it supports macOS and Linux and just provide the snippet to install Nix.
Projects built with Nix
This seems like it should be flipped, listing projects that do use Nix and then a small text to invite folks to add it and instructions should point to a repo markdown file or something
This one is reaaaally tricky. There are so many ways to start (expression language, basic tooling, packaging for your language X, install NixOS, etc). Most probably it would be best to just provide links for each of those.
nix is a software build tool that works across languages and creates reliable builds.
I love that it doesn’t mention functional languages. It’s an implementation detail for the curious few.
I think the pitch needs some work. Chef team created https://www.chef.io/habitat/ after I’ve made them uncomfortable and there are a lot of marketing lessons to be learned from their site.
Maybe: Nix is a software packaging ecosystem with reproducible and deterministic builds.
