Comments Off on Functional Package Management
I just read a great paper about NixOS, a Linux distribution with a “purely functional” package manager. I’ve been thinking about the parallels between programming and system administration, and this is a brilliant use of the comparison. They created a package manager named Nix where all packages are built and maintained independently even of other versions of themselves.
