  • polymorph

    A fast and frugal entity-component-system library with a focus on code generation and compile time optimisation.

  • naylib

    Yet another raylib Nim wrapper

    Project mention: I learned 7 programming languages so you don't have to | | 2023-02-12

    Also on the game development front, I maintain a raylib wrapper As long utilities like c2nim exist, it's trivial to create bindings of C/C++ libraries. One thing I want to experiment more is making it more automatic by writing a callback exposed by c2nim that transform the generated code using Nim's AST. But regardless in that project I was able to write safe language abstractions on top of the bindings that provide a more native experience. It has scope-based memory management, generics and ... function overloading.
