A window manager for linux written in Nim?

Are there any window manager written in Nim?

Would it be posible to port something like dwm or spectrwm to Nim?

Edit (2020-07-06): Found one (by accident): nimdow.

I'm also planning to write my own nimwm targeted to embedded devices such as tablets, mobile phones, or kiosks. Something like i3 with tiling but with borders that can be hidden, and automatic scrollable tiling (each app should work in tiny window, which can be shown in parallel on a screen). The first target is a low-end indie game console runs as a custom firmware for i386, Raspberry, and my old mac mini g4.
