  • Nim

    Nim is a statically typed compiled systems programming language. It combines successful concepts from mature languages like Python, Ada and Modula. Its design focuses on efficiency, expressiveness, and elegance (in that order of priority).

    Package manager for the Nim programming language. (by nim-lang)

    Project mention: Ask HN: What are some unpopular technologies you wish people knew more about? | | 2023-12-02

    I was using Nim for some of last years Advent of Code problems. I was mostly liking the syntax. Was a bit bother by the standard library have a snake case and camel case reference for each function (if I'm remember that correctly).

    At the time nimble also required me to have NPM to install the the Nim package manager, Nimble. This was not ideal, but looking at [the nimble project install docs]( it seems like it is now package with the language.

    Might try dusting it off for some AoC puzzles this year :)

    If the video example does not work, you can use the examples projects in the nim SDL repository. When ex101_init.nim works, there is no reason the video example does not work. If you have further issues, do not hesitate to share a minimal working example with your detailed configuration (Nim compiler version, command line you used, file directory, libraries installed) on the

    - `nim secret`[0]: code is interpreted with Nim's vm, it is limited to compile-time (e.g. no C/C++).

    - `nlvm r`[1]: nlvm backend supports JIT compilation and repl-like interface was added in latest release.

    - `inim`[2]: supports all nim code, but it's not really a true repl. It adds code to a file and recompiles it (you can see the source file with `ctrl+x`). I'd recommend to use it with clang compiler, because it's a bit faster than gcc in my experience. It's the best option right now. And I use it almost daily.

    First two options have rudimentary input system. But you can get command history and left-right navigation by wrapping them with rlwrap (should be preinstalled on most *nixes): `rlwrap nim secret`, `rlwrap nlvm r`.

    There are plans to support incremental compilation for the next Nim release (it is currently broken). That would improve inim and other repls experience significantly.
