Editors [tooling.editors]


Most nim developers use vscode.

  • Nim Extension gets you syntax highlighting, goto definition and other modernities
    • The older, but less maintained Nim plugin is an alternative
  • To start vscode with the correct Nim compiler, run it with ./env.sh code
  • Run nim files with F6
  • Suggestions, goto and similar features mostly work, but sometimes hang
    • You might need to killall nimsuggest occasionally

Other editors with Nim integration
