Nimssh2 is a Nim wrapper for the libssh2 library.

Nimssh2 is distributed as a Nimble package and depends on nimgen and c2nim to generate the wrappers. The libssh2 source code is downloaded using Git so having git in the path is required.


Nimssh2 can be installed via Nimble:

> nimble install nimssh2

This will download, wrap and install nimssh2 in the standard Nimble package location, typically ~/.nimble. Once installed, it can be imported into any Nim program.


Module documentation can be found here.

import nimssh2/libssh2

echo libssh2_init(0)


Nimssh2 wraps the libssh2 source code and all licensing terms of libssh2 apply to the usage of this package.

Credits go out to c2nim as well without which this package would be greatly limited in its abilities.


Nimssh2 is a work in progress and any feedback or suggestions are welcome. It is hosted on GitHub with an MIT license so issues, forks and PRs are most appreciated.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
