Adding a NUR (Nix User Repository!)

This issue has been tracked since 2022-11-08.

Hi! I'd like to install packages from a NUR: and just doing devbox add didn't work.
I'm fairly new to this ecosystem, so apologizes in advance if I'm missing something obvious!

$ devbox add nur.repos.rseops.caliper
Error: package nur.repos.rseops.caliper not found

How do I tell devbox about this set of NUR repos? There are quite a few good packages there.

Update: this thread might have helpful hints for how we'd add it directly to nix:

Many thanks!

Hi @vsoch ,

Thanks for making this suggestion. We currently only install packages from nixpkgs (

But I could imagine supporting a notation like the one you outlined to allow installing packages from other sources as well. Let me discuss with the team to see what we can do.
