I do webdev on Guix, but I work in a team where I’m currently the only
Guix user, so my usage must work with changes we do.

I used to have a setup that used the local guix-installed npm ( ), but that often broke,
so I switched to copying the


script from our build environment to


(which I have on my path)
with #!/usr/bin/env node as hashbang.

That now actually works pretty well, and it uses the node from Guix.
