What is Ethereum.nix?

Ethereum.nix is a collection of Nix packages and NixOS modules designed to make it easier to operate Ethereum related services and infrastructure.

For the uninitiated, using Ethereum.nix will give you the following benefits:

  • Access to a wide range of Ethereum applications packaged with Nix, ready to run without fuss. Nix guarantees you don't have to worry about version conflicts, missing dependencies or even what state your OS is in.
  • We aim that every Ethereum application stored in the repository is constructed from its source, including all input dependencies. This approach guarantees the code's reproducibility and trustworthiness. Furthermore, with Nix, expert users can tweak and adjust the build process to any degree of detail as required.
  • We develop custom NixOS modules to streamline operations with applications such as Execution and Consensus clients (including performing backups). Moreover, we aim to introduce further abstractions that simplify everyday tasks, such as running a production grade Liquid Staking deployment or even a local development environment for running consensus clients and execution clients effortlessly without needing Docker or Kubernetes.

This project is developed entirely in Nix Flakes (but it offers compatibility with legacy Nix thanks to flake-compat).

About the project

In the beginning Ethereum.nix was a playground for Aldo Borrero to experiment with nix'ifying Ethereum related processes. Since then, the project got accepted by the Nix Community incubator program and it has a grown into an ever-increasing number of packages and modules targeted towards streamlining day-to-day operations across a variety of different projects.
