ociTools in NixOS

I’ve been working on some stuff in nixpkgs that recently got merged (and will be in 19.09!).

Because I’m clearly a cool kid, now here’s a blog post about it: https://spacekookie.de/blog/ocitools-in-nixos/

Cool! Are you planning to build layered images just like dockerTools.buildLayeredImage is doing?

I’m not sure how useful that would be. The idea here is anyway to
rebuild containers when the host rebuilds so that applications in
containers are as up-to-date as the hosts. It’s more about having a
more convenient way of managing filesystem (and later) network
namespaces.
