Here's my NixOS/home-manager config files. Requires Nix flakes.
flake.nix: Entrypoint for both hosts (
nixos-rebuild --flake) and home configurations (

I use a erase my darlings-like setup. My desktop pc uses an encrypted btrfs partition, which has subvolumes for nix store, games, home (snapshotted), srv (snapshotted), and var. The pi is similar, but with a single ext4 partition for all that. The root filesystem is a tmpfs, on which the partitions are mounted to achieve opt-in state.
I use home-manager as a standalone module, and, as such, i have to "manually" activate it. For this reason, i have a hook on loginShell that activates it, if not already active.
All you need is bash, nix, and git. Just
nix develop, and you should be good to go.
nixos-rebuild --flake . To build system configuration
home-manager --flake . To build user configuration
