Nix provides a complete and consistent development environment


With Nix, a build process only has access to dependencies that have been
declared explicitly. So if a build succeeds, you know you've specified
all necessary dependencies.

The same build process specification can be used to start a development
environment (optionally augmented with additional development tools).

You will no longer have to hear: But it works on my machine!
