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.

⚡ Performance Meets Safety

Write fast, clear code capable of handling all error conditions.

  • The language gracefully guides your error handling logic.
  • Configurable runtime checks help you strike a balance between performance and safety guarantees.
  • Take advantage of vector types to express SIMD instructions portably.
