We are happy to announce Nifty a NIF interface generator that connects 
with programs written in C. Nifty generates wrappers in form of a NIF 
module for
C functions that are defined in a header file.

The tool is available at:


The documentation and tutorials can be found on the webpage:


Nifty automatically resolves types and comes with a support library for type
and memory management. Additionally Nifty provides a safe remote 
execution mode
that runs a NIF in a separate node. This prevents crashes like segfaults to
bring down the VM and it will prevent long running NIF functions to 
with the schedulers. Nifty also supports dirty schedulers.
