    1. This is more a rhetoric question as this seems to be quite hard ;-) There is a long discussion about installing a subfolder of a repository and monorepos in general at the NPM Github issues (yarn misses this feature, too). The thing is that this makes it quite hard to report issues of your project as one can't test the current master easily. Do you recommend a way how to use the latest Github version?

    1. That app you desperately need in order to function? We probably have it. The vast software libraries of Ubuntu and Flatpak combine to make all of your tools available in a single location, called the Pop!_Shop.

    1. Mobility is cryptographically signed. To be sure the gem you install hasn't been tampered with, add my public key as a trusted certificate and install: gem cert --add <(curl -Ls https://raw.github.com/shioyama/mobility/master/certs/shioyama.pem) gem install mobility -P MediumSecurity The MediumSecurity trust profile will verify signed gems, but allow the installation of unsigned dependencies.

    1. GitHub Packages uses the native package tooling commands you're already familiar with to publish and install package versions.

      Looks like GitHub Packages acts as a wrapper to these clients, acting on your behalf so you don't have to use the CLI yourself.

    1. But what you absolutely should do is test your NPM package in its published format. Create some smoke tests that reside in the actual codebase, but are not part of the test suite.

    1. 3. Deployment as Memory Management

      The entire chapter 3 is worth reading. Great resource on what a package (or more broadly, a component) is in regards to Nix.

      Specifically "3.1 What is a component?"

    1. This option is a function which accepts a package as a parameter, and returns a boolean. The following example configuration accepts a package and always returns false: { allowUnfreePredicate = (pkg: false); }

      What is a package in this context? That is, the callback's pkg parameter. Is it a derivation?

      If I understood it correctly, whenever referencing other packages as inputs, those are actually derivations, that are just attribute sets.

    1. NPM was not and is still not designed to specifically be a node package manager. Yes it has a lot of useful features supporting node.js (some like node_modules is even hardcoded in node.js) but it actually doesn't care what language your software is written in. It is a package manager for your OS, just like apt and yum (or brew for you Mac users).
    2. This is because it's not a node-specific package manager so what it installs could be a Python script or a shell script or a binary executable written in assembly.

    1. prepare: Run both BEFORE the package is packed and published, on local npm install without any arguments, and when installing git dependencies
