Hello. What do you typical use for vendoring dependencies when you are developing a flake along with its dependencies (both flake and non-flake) and dependencies for those dependencies etc…
How do you temporarily and transitively redirect all inputs to local folders?
Right now I’m editing lockfiles via a python script which is changing locked references to local ones.
nix flake update/lock --update-input x y is unusable because lockfiles created in that way have also original references changed and any subsequent Nix command wants to change them back unless you specify
--no-update-lock-file which causes a failure.
For example Rust’s cargo build system has a dedicated command
cargo vendor which clones all dependencies and setup local overrides (transitively). I’m sorely missing such functionality in Nix but perhaps I just haven’t found the right command.
