Zig Programming Language

ยท ยท 138 words ยท 1 minute read

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

A Simple Language ๐Ÿ”—

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 ๐Ÿ”—

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 ๐Ÿ”—

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.
