How's the current story with Zig in terms of dependancy management and build repeatability?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/Zig

Our great sponsors
  • Onboard AI - ChatGPT with full context of any GitHub repo.
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • WorkOS - The modern API for authentication & user identity.
  • gyro

    A Zig package manager with an index, build runner, and build dependencies.

    In the meantime, there are a few community-developed options - gyro is one of them

  • ziglua

    Zig bindings for the Lua C API

    Zig has a build system (the zig build command) that uses a build.zig file to compile a project. With a git submodule you just add the directory as a package in the build.zig file. Depending on the dependency, there might be a few more steps. For example, for my ziglua library requires adding the package path (so you can @import the zig sources), and also calling the link function which compiles the Lua C source and links with the Zig project.

  • Onboard AI

    ChatGPT with full context of any GitHub repo. Onboard AI learns any GitHub repo in minutes and lets you chat with it to locate functionality, understand different parts, and generate new code. Use it for free at app.getonboardai.com.
