This Month with Nim
26 January 2021 Jason Beetham
I will be starting a monthly blog post for community showcase entitled “This Month with Nim”.
This will be a method for developers in the Nim community to publish a small part of a blog post showing off what Nim is capable of and what people are working on. A brief example of what a post might look like is below.
January’s Month With Nim
Author: Jason Beetham
Hello everyone, my current project is a Discord bot that utilizes a DSL to create an easily extendible bot. This DSL generates an
async procedure so you only have to write the body, reducing the repetitive task of matching a procedure signature. To add a command users just have to make a Nim file in the
command folder then replicate the following code.
import command command: name: hello description: "This command sends hello" body: discard await discord.api.sendMessage(discordMsg.channelID, "hello")
This automatically subscribes the command, and thanks to a macro all files in the
command folder are imported so nothing else is required.
If you care to check it out you can look here.
