Project Picasso - a multi-threaded runtime for Nim

"Good artists borrow, great artists steal." -- Pablo Picasso


The Nim destructors and new runtime were introduced to provide GC-less path forward for Nim libraries and applications where it made sense. One of their explicit use case is making threading easier.

# Compile with "nim c --threads:on -d:release -d:danger --outdir:build benchmarks/fibonacci/stdnim_fib.nim"

Making efficient use of the libdispatch (GCD)

libdispatch efficiency tips

I suspect most developers are using the libdispatch inefficiently due to the way it was presented to us at the time it was introduced and for many years after that, and due to the confusing documentation and API. I realized this after reading the 'concurrency' discussion on the swift-evolution mailing-list, in particular the messages from Pierre Habouzit (who is the libdispatch maintainer at Apple) are quite enlightening (and you can also find many tweets from him on the subject).

My take-aways are:

  • You should have very few queues that target the global pool. If all these queues are active at once, you will get as many threads running. These queues should be seen as execution contexts in the program (gui, storage, background work, ...) that benefit from executing in parallel.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
