From ArchWiki

From Wikipedia:

Zig is an imperative, general-purpose, statically typed, compiled system programming language designed by Andrew Kelley. It is intended to be a replacement for the C programming language, with the goals of being even smaller and simpler to program in while also offering modern features, new optimizations and a variety of safety mechanisms while not as demanding of runtime safety as seen in other languages.


Install zig, or zig-gitAUR for the latest development version.

zls provides the Zig Language Server, a Language Server Protocol implementation.
