I dont understand, why everybody like this site, because it worse then old one (in case of usability).
  • Navigation becomes much more harder, try to find link on forum or github repository.
  • You can download nim binaries in 2 clicks in old site and 3 clicks on new one.
  • Try to find tutorials.
  • Color of not visited links are almost equal to text. https://nim-lang.org/community.html.

Also new design looks like responsive, but is it really responsive? Try to look at new web site with width of 840px, you will not be able to use full top menu bar, and whole text formatting becomes ugly.

I agree with @cheatfate that the forum should be easier to access, right now it's pretty buried.

I also think a github link that's accessible near the top would be helpful.

Well I realized the single most important information (at least for me when I came to Nim) is missing on the front page of the new website: metaprogramming. 2017-04-20 00:44:29
@Krux02 but that's on the Features page, which is the first place I'd look at on a new programming language web-site 2017-04-20 07:19:20

but that's on the Features page

Yes, it is a matter of task.

Personally I would agree with @cheatfate -- the new page looks great, but finding all the most relevant information is harder. But that style is typical for many pages done by "Web designers", so people are familiar with it. And maybe that style has advantages for tiny cell phone displays, which has space for only a few small headlines.

@Stefan_Salewski, as i mentioned before site is not usable on resolution less, then 840px, so its not usable on tiny cell phone displays, its only usable on big cell phone displays. 2017-04-20 11:33:56

In what way is it unusable?

This all depend on what you deem important. These links are "below the fold", what information do you consider important enough to be "above the fold"? We certainly cannot put everything there.

You can download nim binaries in 2 clicks in old site and 3 clicks on new one.

I don't think that's a problem. The downloads are better organised now.

Try to find tutorials.

I fixed this. There are now links in the documentation page.

Color of not visited links are almost equal to text. https://nim-lang.org/community.html.

I agree, something we should fix.

I dont understand, why everybody like this site, because it worse then old one (in case of usability).

Because overall the website is better. Of course there are things that still can be improved, but they aren't a fundamental flaw with the website.

I dont think author can say:

Because overall the website is better.

But customers can appreciate the work of author. Your opinion is very subjective and does not reflect the objective reality.

And about 840px, top menu is start hiding most right items of menu, so on IPhones 5s/6/6plus its only Blog, Features and a small part of Install is accessible. On Google Nexus 4/5/6 situation a little bit better, you will have access to Install and part of Documentation top menu items.

You can scroll the menu with your finger.

I like the new website, it's definitely an improvement over the old one, especially on mobile.

Also, did you know that https://nim-lang.org/blog.html leads to the new blog, while https://nim-lang.org/blog leads to araq's musings?

ps: dom96 : I think https://nim-lang.org/faq.html is missing some link tags (editor support section)
