To get the source code you need either of these:

  • A working web browser + tar(or equivalent):
  • wget + tar: wget --no-check-certificate ""
  • git: git clone --depth 1 git://


After downloading the source (and extracting it), you need to extract build/ then you can bootstrap with:

  • ./
  • Put Nim on your PATH
    • For Linux, you only need a symlink: ln -s $PWD/bin/nim /home/user/bin

A simple script

git clone git://
cd Nim


Nimble is Nim's package manager
