Launchpad Bug:


"Flakes" are a new feature of the Nix toolchain which provide a number of desirable features:

  • built-in pinning & maintenance tools
  • conventions and standards for providing multiple package types (and non-package outputs like NixOS modules)

And there are new tools that only work with flakes, such as a new automatic RPM / Deb / Docker image builder.
