+Zig Programming Language
+`Zig <https://ziglang.org>`_  is a system programming language intended to be
+an alternative to C. It provides high level features such as generics, compile
+time function execution, and partial evaluation, while exposing low level LLVM
+IR features such as aliases and intrinsics. Zig uses Clang to provide automatic
+import of .h symbols, including inline functions and simple macros. Zig uses
+LLD combined with lazily building compiler-rt to provide out-of-the-box
+cross-compiling for all supported targets.
