I’m wondering how I can reference packages that are not yet merged into
master (i.e. in
staging) I was hoping I could use
nix-review (or something similar) but it only gives you a shell if there is no change (so you can’t ask for a shell if the pull request is already merged, it’d be nice to have
--force option btw @mic92).
I guess the simple way is to pin
Yeah that worked, I did something like the following:
git clone https://github..nixpkgs git checkout staging nix-shell -I nixpkgs=./nixpkgs -p <the-package>
Dunno if this is the best way to do things (takes a very long time to build) maybe you guys have some good feedback?
