Nim is a systems and applications programming language. Statically typed and compiled, it provides unparalleled performance in an elegant package. The Amiga relation is not based on a port of Nim compiler to the Amiga, but more of a port the Amiga libraries and architecture being used in Nim, which then can be used on the Amiga. “Nim is one of the newer emerging languages, it can ‘transpile’ into C really efficiently and well. So I like to think of it as C but with a lot of cool stuff on top. It supports multiple architectures, and claims to support Amiga – although it’s a little wrong in some parts, and some code is missing. Once compiled to C, then I use VBCC (on Windows) to turn it into an Amiga executable. I’ve got more of a complete system, I’ll be happy to publish to github.” Said developer BeatJan on the AEB forums.
