If you are a software developer, Guix provides tools that you should find helpful—independently of the language you’re developing in. This is what this chapter is about.

The guix shell command provides a convenient way to set up one-off software environments, be it for development purposes or to run a command without installing it in your profile. The guix pack command allows you to create application bundles that can be easily distributed to users who do not run Guix.
