Nim in Action

Nim is a new general-purpose programming language that offers support for systems programming, object oriented programming, procedural programming, functional programming, and more. Nim combines the speed of C with the expressiveness of Python and the flexibility of Lisp and it compiles to C as well as C++, Objective C, and even JavaScript. Nim's features make it perfect for developing anything from web applications to operating systems. Nim in Action introduces the Nim programming language and teaches readers how to write native software applications and libraries, web applications, embedded device software, and programs that communicate over the internet. This book is full of hands-on examples that teach how to test, debug, document, and package Nim applications. It also reveals how to interface with foreign languages such as C and C++ and how to use metaprogramming features to write domain specific languages. This book demonstrates how to implement a fully-functioning chat server, a Twitter clone, and many other software projects. It provides readers with a solid knowledge of Nim and the ability to use it to write powerful, portable and efficient applications. Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
