I'm happy that they have come to the 1.0 release and I wish them
the best. I have personally tinkered with Nim in order to see if
it fits my projects. The language is ok but I find the standard
libraries a bit inconsistent. Syntax wise it quite nice and you
can achieve a lot with fewer lines. The reason I found D better
for my purposes was that it was easier to port C like algorithms
to D and also D has better libraries.
In my opinion Nim is one of the closest competitors of D because
they are both runner up languages and they try to focus on
productivity. Right now Rust seems to be influencing D a lot but
I think if you want to look other languages, you should
definitely also look at Nim.
