I’ve been happily using
nix edit to see the build expression for packages and their options within my default editor. However, when using it with
mkShell it doesn’t actually show the calling code but rather those builtin functions’ source themselves. Is there a way to fix that?
This works great
nix edit nixpkgs#vim
This doesn’t show the nix expression I expected:
nix edit github:carlthome/dotfiles#ipython
(I expected to see this)
