Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.

Devbox is a terminal-based tool that provides an approachable interface for creating reproducible, per-project development environments, leveraging the Nix package manager without using virtual machines or containers. Our teams use it to eliminate version and configuration mismatches of CLI tools and custom scripts in their per-project development environments, on top of the standardization that per-language package managers provide. They found that it notably streamlines their onboarding workflow because once it has been configured for a codebase, it takes one CLI command (devbox shell) to stand it up in a new machine. Devbox supports shell hooks, custom scripts and devcontainer.json generation for integration with VSCode.
