Compilation from git sources


#1

Hello guys,

I would like to work on snips project compiling the snips platform from sources and maybe adding support for it into NixOS. I looked everywhere for one of these things, but without luck:

  • A clear explanation of the architecture and the software inter-dependencies starting from the varoius snips’ git repos. Reading from the docs it’s clear that the hermes component sits in the middle as communication bus between the components that perform the various tasks;

  • a recipe explaining how to install the platform starting from the sources;

  • the sources of the debian/ubuntu packages. That would give me an idea about how to extrapolate the former two and also produce a Nix derivation to compile all the components. I’ve found only the homebrew recipes but I would prefer having the debian packages sources.

Has anyone done that already?
