Nix as dataflow

Inspiration

The argument made here is that CI can be viewed as a build system in a different context. The same can be said for dataflow and transformations.

Attributes desired in a dataflow system:

  • idempotence

  • tracking

  • reproducibility

Leads

  • Nomia

  • Silo

  • Nix with hacks (__noChroot, Hydra, __contentAddressable)
