Star-History — We know, you can't fully trust a project's GitHub stars alone. It is, however, a good way to determine if a tool is an adequate one and if it's likely to grow, if you use it correctly.
disko — NixOS is a Linux distribution where everything is described as code, with one exception: during installation, the disk partitioning and formatting are manual steps. disko aims to correct this sad 🤡 omission.
nixos-anywhere — You can then initiate an unattended installation with a single CLI command. Since nixos-anywhere can access the new machine using SSH, it's ideal for remote installations.
NixOS ❄: tmpfs as root — One fairly unique property of NixOS is the ability to boot with only /boot and /nix. Nothing else is actually required. This supports doing all sorts of weird things with your root file system.
Impermanence - NixOS Wiki — Impermanence in NixOS is where your root directory gets wiped every reboot (such as by mounting a tmpfs to /). Such a setup is possible because NixOS only needs /boot and /nix in order to boot, all other system files are simply links to files in /nix. /boot and /nix still need to be stored on a hard drive or SSD.
