Two new languages: Nim and Crystal
amasad (1374)

Continuing on our language-adding binge, today we're excited to announce two new languages: Nim and Crystal!

Nim

Nim is a statically-typed language tailored for systems programming. It's fast but it also looks good and is easy to use. Furthermore, it's cross-platform and sports multiple compile targets (including JavaScript).

Give it a spin!

Crystal

Crystal plays on the same theme as Nim -- a statically-typed language with a pleasant syntax inspired by Ruby. Additionally, Crystal early catches bugs like null references and sports a powerful macro system.

Give it a spin!

Why is Nim using compiler version that is 3 years old? Where did you even find it?

@SolitudeSF what are you talking about? It's from last year

@amasad agreed, 0.19.4 is the current stable release and there's been quite a few changes since 0.17.2

Regardless, thanks for adding Nim! It'll be great to have a high quality playground like repl.it around, I've really enjoyed using it with several other languages.
