What is nixcloud?

Nixcloud is a platform for Nix based projects and services.

Software Development! For individual solutions.

Nix, Go, JavaScript, C++, C, Java, Python, Perl, Qt, Node.js, Rust (cargo-deployment) and many more...

Interested in what we did?

  • A tour of Nix, mainly making use of Emscripten, LLVM, HTML5 and JavaScript.
  • nixcloud-webservices, see this introduction but we also wrote nixcloud.email which is a a complete mailserver abstraction and we created nixcloud.TLS recently, which is a TLS certificate management system written in Nix.
  • We created dep2nix which helps go developers to deploy using NixOS
  • We help to make third party package managemnt easy with Nix, we wrote nixcrates!
  • We created and maintain the emscripten toolchain in nixpkgs
  • We encourage test driven development
  • We produce lots of Nix/NixOS propaganda, see this

Linux. Server, Desktop or Embedded.

NixOS, Debian, Android & Yocto - where we go, Linux will come.

We do embedded development on ARM and PowerPC64. Lately we made NixOS run on the Odroid XU4 platform. Yet we find that maintain NixOS servers on Hetzner infrastructure and our APU server are the most robust platforms.


Hosting. Taking care of servers.

We deployed Haskell-apps to EC2 lately and we use nixops to manage AWS, Hetzner or DigitalOcean instances. We do web-hosting like WordPress, see kotalla.de but also traditional linux services like setup of email servers.


Open Source. We encourage sharing!

We teach Nix-related technologies! Need help?

Nix, NixOS, nixpkgs, hydra or nixOps?

You want to start with Nix-related technologies as soon as possible but need a hand to get into it? We come to your place and give you a general introduction into Nix-related technologies. Just contact us and tell us what you plan to do. For the time being you can start with our A Tour of Nix to get into Nix-programming!

Our vision is to automate software deployment and its testing. We build on top of Nix/NixOS in order to get there.
