Installation

Stable version:

nix-env -i nix-tree

Development version (requires Nix with flake support):

nix profile install github:utdemir/nix-tree

Usage

$ nix-tree --help
nix-tree --help
Usage: nix-tree [paths] [-h|--help]
  Paths default to $HOME/.nix-profile and /var/run/current-system.
Keybindings:
  hjkl/Arrow Keys : Navigate
  q/Esc:          : Quit / close modal
  w               : Open why-depends mode
  /               : Open search mode
  i               : Toggle modeline
  ?               : Show help

Tips

nix-build prints built paths to stdout, which can be piped conveniently with | xargs -o nix-tree. Examples:

# Output of a local derivation
nix-build . --no-out-link | xargs -o nix-tree

# Build time dependencies (passing a `.drv` path)
nix-instantiate --no-out-link | xargs -o nix-tree

# Dependencies from shell.nix
nix-build shell.nix -A inputDerivation | xargs -o nix-tree

# All outputs of a derivation in nixpkgs:
nix-build '<nixpkgs>' -A openssl.all --no-out-link | xargs -o nix-tree

Hacking

All contributions, issues and feature requests are welcome.

To hack on it, simply run nix-shell (or nix develop) and use cabal as usual.
