Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Name: nimble (packaging for nim, the programming language)

Homepage: https://github.com/nim-lang/nimble

Why should this be included in the repository: Nim already is in the repository, but nimble isn't. Interestingly, the wiki mentions that nimble is bundled with nim as of v0.15, but you can't call nimble from the command-line to run it.

Is it Open Source (yes/no): Yes

How many users do you anticipate will use this software?: Pretty much everyone who uses nim to program, I'd think.

Event Timeline

Nimble is now bundled with Nim (since Nim version 0.15.0). This means that you should have Nimble installed already, as long as you have the latest version of Nim installed as well.

Need to dig into why we don't have it then. as we are on 0.16.0
