Zig is a general-purpose programming language and toolchain for maintaining robust, optimal and reusable software.

⚡ A Simple Language
Focus on debugging your application rather than debugging your programming language knowledge.

  • No hidden control flow.
  • No hidden memory allocations.
  • No preprocessor, no macros.

⚡ Comptime
A fresh approach to metaprogramming based on compile-time code execution and lazy evaluation.

  • Call any function at compile-time.
  • Manipulate types as values without runtime overhead.
  • Comptime emulates the target architecture.

⚡ Maintain it with Zig
Incrementally improve your C/C++/Zig codebase.

  • Use Zig as a zero-dependency, drop-in C/C++ compiler that supports cross-compilation out-of-the-box.
  • Leverage zig build to create a consistent development environment across all platforms.
  • Add a Zig compilation unit to C/C++ projects; cross-language LTO is enabled by default.

$ brew install zig

Sample code:

const std = @import("std");

pub fn main() anyerror!void {
    std.log.info("Hello world!", .{});


$ ./zig-out/bin/z
info: Hello world!
