nef provides all its features as a library that you can consume in your macOS project. It enables you to build new tooling on top of nef.
It gives you easy access to render Markdown files, Jekyll content and Carbon images in a functional way. Also you can compile or clean your nef Playgrounds, even make an Xcode Playground or Playground Book compatible with 3rd-party libraries.
Xcode Playgrounds are a friendly tool for prototyping and trying new concepts. However, they have some limitations, if you need to create playgrounds with 3rd-party libraries support or make your Xcode Playground compatible with the rest of the options.
