Simplest way is to run:

$ curl -L | sh

After installation, you might need to relogin to your shell to reload the environment. Otherwise, run the following to use Nix immediately:

source ~/.nix-profile/etc/profile.d/

If you have installed Nix before but have not updated it for a while, you should update it with:

nix-channel --update

This helps ensure we are installing the latest version of packages in global installation and global imports.
