What do you think about the programming language NIM?


#21

Nim is a pretty nice looking language, but it’s not interactive. There have been some attempts to make a REPL but none every really worked. So while Julia is a language that’s difficult to static compile, Nim is a language that is hard to make interactive.

For me, that puts it out of the data science and scientific computing category since I utilize interactivity all of the time when exploring results.But Nim is still a good language for cases where static compilation is necessary.

Could julia REPL to be extended as nim REPL (using LLVM/Clang as background)? I watched Keno’s Cxx.jl presentation and he said that C++ REPL is the most used feature of Cxx.jl.
