Making yourself comfortable

If you intend to run the images directly, we recommend you start by fetching the package list and installing a few useful packages:

nix-channel --update && nix-env --install bash bash-interactive less gnugrep && exec bash

This will give you a much more comfortable shell to work in.

Since not everybody needs this, we decided to leave it out of the nixdock image.
