Nix-shell does not have latest version of holochain

What’s up guys, it’s been a while. Running nix-shell https://holochain.love is giving me holochain v0.0.38-alpha14, should be v0.0.40-alpha1, right? How do I get the latest in nix-shell?

Hi @vanarchist the latest Holochain Core version is v.0.0.40-alpha1, but it looks like love could still be pinned to v.0.0.38. FYI, check out this post from Meister. TLDR:

Check out this post about our release process and the reasoning behind pinned versions. Holochain Release Blessing.

In the meantime, I’ll look into the issue. Check out the Holochain Release Blessing post if you want to get the latest version.

Thanks @dhtnetwork, that helped. I ran nix-shell https://github.com/holochain/holonix/archive/master.tar.gz and that got me the latest stuff. It is a bit confusing as https://docs.holochain.love/docs/configure/ says that https://holochain.love is a convenience url that points to the master branch of the holonix repo on github. Seems like that documentation is out of date.

Things are moving quite fast, and you are right documentation needs to be updated to reflect the latest.

Lets get those docs updated : ). Note to us : ).

Hmm, turns out hc generate doesn’t work when I use nix-shell https://github.com/holochain/holonix/archive/master.tar.gz. I ran hc generate zomes/geospatial rust-proc and got:

downloading and extracting tarball from: https://github.com/holochain/rust-proc-zome-template/archive/master.tar.gz
 > zomes/geospatial/

but it doesn’t create anything.

hmm interesting @thedavidmeister what do you think? Anything else Van can do?

hmm, if there’s a bug in hc generate we need to fix it before we bless the release… can we get a bug report up on holonix? @dhtnetwork @vanarchist

Hi @vanarchist it would be a big help if you can submit a bug report with all the details. We’ll keep an eye on the issue and help resolve it once it’s on GitHub.

In terms of the docs, we’ll bundle and address doc changes in the near future. In the meantime, there is an issue so you can track the progress. https://github.com/holochain/holonix/issues/117
