  • GitHub repo 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).

  • GitHub repo nitter

    Alternative Twitter front-end

    Project mention: Can't read Twitter at all without an account | | 2022-01-15

    Or use any other Nitter instance via this page on the Nitter GitHub wiki:

    However, since that page can be a little outdated (because the wiki page needs to be manually updated), you can also try out this live Nitter instances status page:

    Since the main instance can be rate limited at times, I highly recommend testing out the other Nitter instances out there and find one that is both consistently online and doesn't get rate limited.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • GitHub repo nimble

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

    Project mention: Alternative privacy-respecting front ends for popular services | | 2021-12-23

    `nimble` is the package manager for the programming language `nim` [1].

    From [2], we can see that `nimble scss` simply generates the CSS files for the frontend.

    The benefit of OSS is you can answer these questions yourself with a bit of poking around! IMO this is a fairly standard installation process, maybe the fact that it's using Nim instead of a more mainstream language makes it look more daunting than it is. The only out-of-the-ordinary thing here, IMO, is `nimble build` instead of `make build`.



  • GitHub repo Arraymancer

    A fast, ergonomic and portable tensor library in Nim with a deep learning focus for CPU, GPU and embedded devices via OpenMP, Cuda and OpenCL backends

    Project mention: A Machine learning library for Nim | | 2021-11-16
  • GitHub repo prologue

    Powerful and flexible web framework written in Nim

    Project mention: Nim Version 1.6 Released | | 2021-10-19

    Well no language is perfect, but Nim can be used in almost every domain because of it's compilation targets(C, C++, JS) and it's fast compile times(who needs interpretation when compile times are that fast!):

    * Shell scripting, I still assume most people will just use Bash tho:

    * Frontend: or you could bind to an existing JS library.

    * Backend: For something Flask-like: or something with more defaults

    * Scientific computing: the wonderful SciNim

    * Blockchain: Status has some of the biggest Nim codebases currently in production

    * Gamedev: Also used in production: and due to easy C and C++ interop, you get access to a lot of gamedev libraries!

    * Embedded: this is a domain I know very little about but for example or for fun Nim+embedded stuff!

    Most of the disadvantages come from tooling and lack of $$$ support.

  • GitHub repo nimforum

    Lightweight alternative to Discourse written in Nim

    Project mention: Use forums rather than Slack/Discord to support developer community | | 2021-11-08

    If you like Discourse but want something a bit lighter, check out:

  • GitHub repo NiGui

    Cross-platform desktop GUI toolkit written in Nim

    Project mention: Nim version 1.6.0 released - Nim Blog | | 2021-10-19

    There is also the Nim base nigui. It atleast sets out to give a cross platform GUI toolkit for all OS using "native"(Mac/Linux use gtk presently) drawing.

    Project mention: Nim Version 1.6 Released | | 2021-10-19
  • GitHub repo nlvm

    LLVM-based compiler for the Nim language

    Project mention: Is Nim a Transpiler? | | 2021-10-20
  • GitHub repo choosenim

    Tool for easily installing and managing multiple versions of the Nim programming language.

  • GitHub repo nimbus-eth1

    Nimbus: an Ethereum 1.0 and 2.0 Client for Resource-Restricted Devices

    Project mention: Nimbus: An Ethereum 1.0 and 2.0 Client for Resource-Restricted Devices | | 2021-08-24
  • GitHub repo godot-nim

    Nim bindings for Godot Engine

    Project mention: FYI, you can use Rust as a native scripting language | | 2021-11-26

    Ant then install the bindings. And thats where I'm a bit lost even after reading Godot docs. Not sure if I'm right, but seems to be necessary to compile Godot?

  • GitHub repo moe

    A command line based editor inspired by vi/vim. Written in Nim.

    Project mention: Making Emacs Popular Again | | 2021-11-04

    There is a some effort in Nim, called moe[1]. Nim has a lot of features similar to a Lisp, and is both compiled and scriptable. Of course, it requires contributions to make it usable as a daily driver, but I guess that is somewhat the point. The vision is sound imo.


  • GitHub repo packages

    List of packages for Nimble (by nim-lang)

    Project mention: An Introduction to Crystal | | 2021-02-21

    Do you have any specific libraries that you are missing? The packages list [1] has almost 1600 packages.


  • GitHub repo NimData

    DataFrame API written in Nim, enabling fast out-of-core data processing

    Project mention: Which dataframe library to use? | | 2021-12-21

    There seems to be two major ones for Nim, NimData and Datamancer. Which one is better?

  • GitHub repo nimterop

    Nimterop is a Nim package that aims to make C/C++ interop seamless

    Project mention: Genny – Generate Nim library bindings for many languages | | 2021-09-12

  • GitHub repo nimbus-eth2

    Nim implementation of the Ethereum 2.0 blockchain

    Project mention: My First Impressions of Web3 | | 2022-01-07

    > If you care about the environment even a little bit (like turning off lights in rooms you're not occupying) then you will reject Web3. Even the most efficient blockchains use more energy than the status quo unnecessarily.

    On an Intel NUC (Core i3, low power mode) I'm running a non-mining Ethereum 1 full node[1] plus a staking Ethereum 2 node[2] (comprising two active validators) on mainnet. Measured with a Kill A Watt[3] since genesis of the beacon chain, it's using approximately USD 140 kWh of electricity per year (about USD $15/year where I live), and makes use of the Internet connection that I use for everything else personal and work related. The Ethereum 1 node also acts as my personal gateway to Ethereum vs. say my needing to connect through Infura.

    There are today 279235 active validators[4] on Ethereum mainnet. Now, I know that Ethereum hasn't made the switch over to Proof of Stake yet (that's what Eth 2 is all about) but it's' coming this year. Let's ignore the kWh usage of my non-mining full Eth 1 node and assume the 140 kWh is split evenly by the validators (it's not even close, the Eth 1 node is a pig in comparison, but for sake of argument), then round each one up to 100 kWH per year and assume that's the average per validator going forward, and let's grow the beacon chain to 1 million active validators. So that's 100k MWh per year. Amazon reported[5] that they consumed 24 million MWh in 2020. I'm not sure how many combined MWh are consumed by the data centers for VISA, traditional banks, etc., but I'm guessing it's nothing to sneeze at.

    According to Statista[6], it costs about 150 kWh for VISA to process 100k transactions. According to VISA[7] they processed about 206 billion transactions over 12 months. So that's about 309k MWh.

    A couple of things to consider also. Ethereum devs are concerned about energy consumption, and there are active efforts to drive down the energy cost per validator by the various projects (nimbus, teku, etc.). Also, my Core i3 Intel NUC is pretty heavy-duty compared to lower-end hardware capable of running a validator node. So I expect the energy cost/year of Eth 2 to improve in coming years.








  • GitHub repo norm

    A Nim ORM (by moigagoo)

    Project mention: Nim Version 1.6 Released | | 2021-10-19

    In the ORM field, Norm[1] is an actively maintained package that supports SQLite and Postgres. It's framework agnostic, I've used it with Jester and Prologue (it had nothing to do with Prolog btw).

    Among frameworks, Prologue is the most actively developed and feature rich.


  • GitHub repo patty

    A pattern matching library for Nim

    Project mention: Patten Matching in Nim | | 2021-03-11

    ...except that macros don't change the syntax of the language! They just offer convenience on top of it, most common example is the `=>` lambda operator from the `sugar` module. I do agree, that the pattern matching macro presented in the article is a bit hard to get used to, but you don't have to, if you don't like pattern matching. And of course there are plenty of alternatives available as well, the simplest one imo is

  • GitHub repo nim-chronos
