Suber is an in-process topic-based publish/subscribe engine with an in-memory cache. It is primarily aimed for situations where a server is pushing messages to clients but connections may occasionally fail, and therefore a fast method for redelivering missed messages comes in handy. Probably also other valid use cases exist.

Nim VS Code/Codium Extension

Author: saem

If you’d like to write programs in Nim and be certain that you’re on Nim while doing it, well then the Nim Extension for VS Code/Codium is for you!

Originally started as a port of an extension written in TypeScript, this one is written in straight Nim and compiled to JS – yes, Nim can do that! The port started as a project to learn Nim itself and make it easier for Nimions or even new Nimlets to be productive using the language and be empowered to make changes to the extension directly. Imagine, being able to improve your tools as you go, it’s like macros, but your IDE or something.
