Updates (May 14th, 2022)
We've added support for Mac M1 builds. And you can now configure what gets built with the new garnix.yaml file. In other news, we have started accepting donations via Open Collective!
We have some more updates to share!
You can now pick more precisely what garnix builds with a garnix.yaml file You can find all the details in our docs, but the gist of it is this:
builds: include: - 'packages.x86_64-linux.*' - 'devShell.x86_64-linux' exclude: - 'packages.x86_64-linux.bar'
There's currently a builds section only, which features include and exclude keys. garnix builds every attribute matching the includes, except for those that match the excludes.
If you have attributes that are okay to fail (devShells, for instance, sometimes are not mean to be built), this can prevent them from causing checks to fail.
Another big thing you can do with this is...
We now have a M1 server for your builds. The default for garnix.yaml does not include aarch64-darwin, so you'll have to explicitly turn it on to start building on an M1 (by adding e.g. packages.aarch64-darwin.* to the include).
Note that renting Macs is a bit expensive, and scaling them too, so don't turn this on unless you need it, and/or...
Right now hosting alone is costing us money that we aren't yet recouping -- and that doesn't include the far more significant development cost.
LunNova got in touch to ask whether they could donate, and that made me think that maybe it's worth experimenting with having garnix be a donation-based service.
Thanks to LunNova and an anonymous donor!
We started an Open Collective account so you can also donate.
We changed the structure of our build URLs - if you have links saved, those will need to be updated. Previously the links were rather long, and based on commit, repo, and package rather than unique ID. Thus, this change will allow us to do re-runs in the future.
Microsoft's LSP is great for text-editor diversity, but it is severely lacking in flexibility for project-specific configuration.
Release announcement for garn version v0.0.19, which includes the ability to import Nix flakes from the internet and from your repository.
Release announcement for garn version v0.0.17 and v0.0.18. Includes better Haskell support, and less confusing file tracking.
