Nix global configuration

I understand how nix works on the per-workspace level, and I think it’s great. Now, I am wondering if there is any nix config in IDX for the whole system, that would apply to every workspace?

I couldn’t easily find a way to do this, and I know there is a “workaround” by just editing each dev.nix file of every workspace I am in with preferred opinionated packages (such as Neovim and a Neovim config), but having a dedicated “global” configuration would be very convenient, if that doesn’t already exist.

Hi there — that isn’t currently something we offer, but please feel free to drop that as a Feature Request, with your specific use cases, in our Feature Request portal!
