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.
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.
