nix store add-path - add a path to the Nix store
nix store add-path [option…] path
Copy path to the Nix store, and print the resulting store path on standard output.
The resulting store path is not registered as a garbage collector root, so it could be deleted before you have a chance to register it.
Add a directory to the store:
# mkdir dir # echo foo > dir/bar # nix store add-path ./dir /nix/store/6pmjx56pm94n66n4qw1nff0y1crm8nqg-dir # cat /nix/store/6pmjx56pm94n66n4qw1nff0y1crm8nqg-dir/bar foo
Show what this command would do without doing it.
- --name / -n name
Override the name component of the store path. It defaults to the base name of path.
