today i try to install dwm but the fork one i got from github. i read this (st - NixOS Wiki) but the wiki is for st…how do i get the ‘rev’ argument and sha256 for dwm from github repo??
nix-prefetch-github or other related tools. You can clone locally and do
git rev-parse HEAD to get the SHA1 of your commit, or you specify a tag to fetch from.
sha256 is built upon that using that. If you used one of the
nix-prefetch-* tools, it will be already available to you in the generated file. If you decided to go one of the manual routes, you can use
lib.fakeSha256 as initial value (or if your
nix is recent enough, just use
sha256 = null or omit it) and then copy the “got” value from the error on first build into the
A more streamlined interface would be https://github.com/msteen/nix-prefetch
