Announcement: The IRC channel has moved to libera.chat, #lorri. We have been devoiced and de-oped by the freenode admins because of advertising this fact. If you still idle in #lorri on freenode, please come join us there.
lorri is a nix-shell replacement for project development. lorri is based around fast direnv integration for robust CLI and editor integration.
👉 Check out our blog post to see how lorri improves on the nix-shell experience during everyday development as well as in common scenarios like channel updates and Nix garbage collection.
The project is about experimenting with and improving the developer's experience with Nix. A particular focus is managing your project's external dependencies, editor integration, and quick feedback.
If you are using NixOS or home-manager on Linux and a Nixpkgs channel at least as recent as nixos-19.09, you can get started with lorri as follows. Otherwise see the next section, Setup on other platforms.
