File detection and syntax highlighting for the zig programming language.


If using vim-plug (for Vim or Neovim)

  • Open vim config
  • Write Plug 'ziglang/zig.vim' inside the plug command:
call plug#begin('~/.vim/plugged')
   Plug 'ziglang/zig.vim'
call plug#end()
  • Restart vim / reload vim config
  • type :PlugInstall

If using Vim:

  • Use Vim 8 or newer
  • mkdir -p ~/.vim/pack/plugins/start/
  • cd ~/.vim/pack/plugins/start/
  • git clone

If using Neovim:

  • mkdir -p ~/.local/share/nvim/site/pack/plugins/start/
  • cd ~/.local/share/nvim/site/pack/plugins/start/
  • git clone


This plugin enables automatic code formatting on save by default using zig fmt. To disable it, you can use this configuration in vimrc:

let g:zig_fmt_autosave = 0

The default compiler which gets used by :make (:help :compiler for details) is zig_build and it runs zig build. The other options are:

  • :compiler zig_test which runs zig test on the current file.
  • :compiler zig_build_exe which runs zig build-exe on the current file.
  • :compiler zig which requires that a subcommand is passed as an argument and it runs on the current file.
