Replit has teamed up with Obsidian Systems (@Ericson2314) and Tweag (@regnat, @ben) to add a Local Overlay Store to Nix that allows merging of multiple (possibly remote) stores.
You can read more about the motivation and details for this project on our blog:
In the coming weeks, we will be developing these new features, releasing a Nix RFC, and working to upstream it into Nix.
Reply here if you have ideas for how this kind of Store could help you out. We’re interested to learn about more use cases to make it as general as possible.
Ultimately, we’re trying to make all the features of Nix work inside Replit Repls and this will go a long way.
Replit is also hiring for a lot of roles. If you live in North America and want to help bring Nix to millions of developers please reach out to me (@ryantm) and apply.
