Rewriting a document rendering Makefile with Nix, and I'm again struck by how good it is. Need Pandoc and TexLive? Specific fonts? Post-processing tools? Spell checkers? You got it. It's all there, unified in Nix with an actual programming language.

@freakazoid I haven't used guix. I'm on Fedora and using only nix the package manager. Are you using guix?
@freakazoid I do like the idea of a lisp, though.
