  • Zig's Curious Multi-Sequence for Loops
    10 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 27 Feb 2023
    I’ve absolutely had satisfaction with my several personal projects written in Zig. And based on an imperfect measurement (GitHub stars) I have also had moderate success in making something useful. It’s a terminal fuzzy finder [0]. I also maintain a Zig Lua bindings package [1], and I’m working on a port of an old Macintosh game [2].

    Zig is exactly what I want out of a language though, so take my opinion with a grain of salt :)

  • How's the current story with Zig in terms of dependancy management and build repeatability?
    2 projects | /r/Zig | 30 Jul 2022
    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.
