I want to share an idea that I’ve been playing with for some time now.
To me it looks like the ideal stepping stone to pave the way for mass adoption of nix: marry the nix and container ecosystems.
Therefore, I decided to reach out to the container folks and ask for guidance on how to include nix principles into the OCI specification. In that, I think I could need some guidance, help and maybe even “rallying-behind-the-flag”-support.
For now, I just share the upstream issue here:
Last time a similar issue resulted in the creation of
builtkit-nix. So why not give it a try?
