Nim (formerly known as Nimrod) is a statically typed programming language with an emphasis on performance, portability, and expressiveness. It compiles to C, C++, or JavaScript. The syntax is designed to be clear and concise without sacrificing the flexibility that comes with expressive typing. Nim supports metaprogramming through macros and has a notable emphasis on memory safety without requiring a garbage collector for most scenarios. Its standard library covers common needs such as networking, threading, parsing tasks, data structures compositions among others while being supplemented by third-party libraries available via Nim's package manager.
