Nim is a little dynamic, strongly typed programming language experiment written in C. It has "shared nothing" tasks that communicate via message passing and each task gets its own heap, garbage collector and virtual machine.
If you can imagine Rust or Erlang carrying Ruby & Python’s bastard surrogate child... well, yeah. It’s kinda like that.
Nim was formerly known as 'chimp'. An introductory blog post is available here:
Running on OS X
Getting started with Nim is a breeze.
brew install cmake cmake . make ./nim examples/helloworld.nim
Other things you might need to install.
brew install check brew install valgrind
Unit testing are written partially with the check library (for testing C and partially in NimUnit) If you haven't already installed check, you might need to do that before you run the tests:
cmake . make clean test
