Other tools

For tools like awscli, curl, kubectl, vim, python, nodejs, git, ghc, jq, etc., you can run $ nix-env -i $tool_name. This will install such a tool. For example: $ nix-env -i awscli.

Opening the environment

At this point, you can open a Bash shell, execute $ code, and the code editor will be able to auto-complete, jump-to-definition, etc. Additionally, your Bash shell will be able to locate product dependencies if you need to debug.
