I cloned the current plutus repo

git clone https://github.com/input-output-hk/plutus

And i'm on the current commit


But building the dev container does not work (before some weeks it worked on the same machine)

wutze@wutze-pc:~/workspace/plutus$ sudo docker load < $(nix-build default.nix -A devcontainer)
error: attribute 'devcontainer' in selection path 'devcontainer' not found
-bash: $(nix-build default.nix -A devcontainer): ambiguous redirect

Any ideas what's wrong?

The devcontainer is existing in this git commit


They have moved the devcontainer to The Plutus Application Framework As per the README in the plutus repository. This repository used to contain the code for the Plutus Application Framework and Marlowe. These have now moved:

Plutus Application Framework

  • thanks didn't notice that it was moved to a different repo
