Nix package manager
a purely functional package manager
Nix is a purely functional package manager that allows transactional upgrades and roll-back, per-user unprivileged package management, garbage collection, and referentially-transparent build processes.
It was originally written by Eelco Dolstra as a doctoral project at Utrecht University, and is currently maintained at Delft University of Technology, in the Netherlands.
