Raison d’être#

nimble is a great tool for development but it does not get on well with system package managers. This project is intended to be used with traditional package managers (primarly with Gentoo’s Portage). But maybe it’ll be useful for other purposes too.

Development status#

This software is considered completed and stable. No new features are planned, however there will be releases for bug fixes and compatibility updates.
