  • Genny – Generate Nim library bindings for many languages
    6 projects | | 12 Sep 2021
    I've found this to be true, with the exception that a few people have taken to "augmenting" libclang with extra bindings to libTooling functions or other C++-only methods.

    Most notably is Tanner Gooding & Co's "libClangSharp" from the Microsoft "ClangSharp" project, and PathogenDavid's "Biohazrd" libraries (which again are a sort of enhanced fork based on ClangSharp):  # See "/sources/libClangSharp"

    If you want to go down that route, clangsharp can do this for you.
