TL;DR: I wanna make my own home manager with blackjack and flakes
Hello, people! I am a bit confused.
Summarizing a bit: my usage of home-manager is simply install programs via
home.packages list and manually edit dotfiles (I use org mode to help on it). Even when home-manager offers modules, I prefer to edit files by hand.
So my question is: how can I manage my home directory in a more handmade manner?
My idea is to use something like
\> some-nix-command my-config.nix # output: some useful directory like `/nix/var/nix/profiles/per-user/<username>/...` > edit-configuration # something like
emacs .bashrc .profile .config/...
Also, I want to use as much as possible teh new flakes infrastructure, specially to get rid of NIX_PATH variable.
I was trying to follow the Matej Cotman’s article but I stuck because it uses the old Nix command.
