Changes
  • Better documentation for nix-prettify-mode
  • Fixes for nix-eshell.el

  • Add flake.nix

1.4.2

Changes

  • Invoke smie indent function locally, instead of globally.
  • Indent correctly when encountering preceding angle bracket paths.
  • Require Emacs 25.

1.4.1

Changes
  • Made smie-setup optional. Some really large files can take a little bit to load. You can smie by setting nix-mode-use-smie to nil. It is still enabled by default.

  • Tweaks to how smie works.

1.4.0

Changes
  • Introduced SMIE indentation mode. It is now the default. The old behavior can be restored by setting ‘nix-indent-function’ to indent-relative.

  • Added the ‘nix-indent-region’ function to indent blocks of Nix expressions. This can be used as a dumb formatter.

  • Better testing has been added to make sure we handle more cases of Nix indentation style.

1.3.0

  • Added manual.

  • Create CHANGELOG.md

New files
  • nix.el: customization settings for nix installation

Changes
  • fix byte-compile error

1.2.0

New files
  • nix-format.el: format Nix code using nixfmt
  • nix-mode-mmm.el: treate multiline strings as sh-script within nix-mode
  • nix-repl.el: run nix-repl within Emacs
  • nix-prettify-mode.el: shorten store paths to /nix/store/…-foo-0.1
  • nix-shell.el: run nix-shell within Emacs
  • nix-company.el: complete Nix expressions through company
Changes

All of these reflect nix-mode.el and what's been changed from the original nix-mode.el.

  • add some simple tests for nix-mode
  • handle antiquotes within Nix expressions better
  • handle multiline string better
  • fixes some edge cases for ''${ (escaped antiquote)
  • indent Nix code based on Nix-specific rules (not just indent-relative)
  • enforce Nix spacing style rules in nix-mode (2 spaces, no tabs)
Bug fixes

This version fixes the following bugs in the original Nix version:

  • fixes the issue where /* by a multiline string is interpreted as a comment (NixOS/nix#662)
  • fixes antiquote highlighting within double quotes like x="${asdf}" (NixOS/nix#1055)
  • fixes an issue in org-mode fontification of nix files (NixOS/nix#1040)
  • Also, should these issues should be closable: NixOS/nix#1419, NixOS/nix#1086, NixOS/nix#1054
