I'm really enjoying using Nix package manager for development. I don't need to install some packages globally just to try some new project.

Just run:

nix-shell -p gtk3 -p fontconfig --run zsh

Try out the project/compiler/run/etc.. then exit the nix-shell and I don't have anything installed globally in my OS. Perfect! :ablobcatcoffee:
