5 Development

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 environment command provides a convenient way to set up development environments containing all the dependencies and tools necessary to work on the software package of your choice. The guix pack command allows you to create application bundles that can be easily distributed to users who do not run Guix.
