Process NixPkgs package set without failures

Hi there, I’m trying to process all of the packages in NixPkgs to extract information like metadata, configuration options, or even looking at build outputs to gather more details. So far the only decent solution for this allows me to get metadata via nix-env --meta. Ideally, I would be able to work with flakes rather than Nix channels and I would also like to grab information that may not come with the results of --meta. Are there any solutions for this?

You might be interested in (not only the tools themselves but also their code):

I’m curious what you’re building, what you’re learning and what approach you land on!
