I think the Nix manual explains it best:
Basically, it creates a shell environment in which some packages
specified in an input file are available. A great use-case for this is
setting up development environments for software projects. A
'shell.nix' file would live in the root of a project's source tree. A
new developer would clone the repository, run 'nix-shell' and have an
environment that has everything needed to build and run the software.
Does that help?
