The yanix crate is no longer maintained. Use posish or cap-std instead.


yanix stands for Yet Another Nix crate, and, well, it is simply a yet another crate in the spirit of the nix crate. As such, this crate is inspired by the original nix crate, however, it takes a different approach, using lower-level interfaces with less abstraction, so that it fits better with its main use case which is our WASI implementation, wasi-common.
