Writing neuron models

We are currently in the process of transitioning from the old way of writing models for NEST (i.e manually by implementing a C++ class) to our new modeling language NESTML, which allows to write neuron models using domain concepts from computational neuroscience as first level objects and generate the source code automatically.

If you intend to write your own neuron model, please have a look at the NESTML GitHub page. In case of questions, feel free to subscribe to the NEST mailing list. If you find any problems with NESTML, we kindly ask you to open an issue on the NESTML issue tracker on GitHub.
