Install Nix

bob requires Nix to install project dependencies, so before using bob make sure you have Nix installed.

You can install Nix by running:

sh <(curl -L --no-daemon

Above command will perform a single-user installation of Nix, meaning that /nix is owned by the invoking user. You should run this under your usual user account, not as root. The script will invoke sudo to create /nix if it doesn't already exist.

To verify your installation type:

nix --version

You should get a message with current Nix version installed.


For bash add this to .bashrc:

source <(bob completion)

For zsh add this to .zshrc:

source <(bob completion -z)
