nsL is a new C-like programming language for writing NSIS installation wizards (http://nsis.sourceforge.net). The nsL assembler takes nsL code and translates it into original NSIS script which can then be compiled.

Gartner’s Recommendations for DevOps Pipeline Success Icon

Is your CI/CD pipeline a hodge-podge of randomly connected tools?

Gartner’s Recommendations for DevOps Pipeline Success Icon
You’ve likely added a tool to fix one problem and then a different tool to fix another problem. Pretty soon you have multiple instances of the same tool, different tools with overlapping functionality, no ability to collaborate across teams—all resulting in unknown bottlenecks and complicated or no reporting. As a DevOps leader, it’s up to you to balance the autonomy and flexibility of a DevOps approach. But how?

    This is very useful plug-in because NSIS syntax is a little "low level". With this nsL you can write NSIS installers in C/Java similar language faster and the script is nice and well-arranged. It contains most common syntax like functions, conditions, calls and much more, But there are still some little bugs (no big deal) and lack of IDEs (I use nsL in combination with Visual Studio using Visual & Installer: unsigned-softworks.sk/visual-installer/index.html which is then only IDE for this language). I do not recommend nsL to beginners but to intermediate NSIS users.
