gyro.zzz feat: zupper tracks what version is in use 6 months ago


A Zig version manager, written in zig.

WARNING: zupper is alpha software! Expect bugs!


  • managing multiple zig installations
    • installing zig
    • switching zig installations
    • removing installations
    • automatic updates
  • fancy CLI
  • concurrent downloading and unpacking
  • multi-platform support (actually, not sure about windows xD)
  • tiny binary (211 KB)
  • few native dependencies
  • written in zig



Zupper requires libarchive and libcurl to be installed. libarchive is used to unpack the compiler toolchain and libcurl for downloading it. These 2 dependencies will probably be swapped out for zig versions at some point once a suitable library pops up.

  1. Install the dependencies.

You probably already have them installed, but just to make sure, here are the commands to install them.


pacman -S --needed \
    curl \


# you don't need to use the openssl version of libcurl
apt install \
    libcurl4-openssl-dev \
  1. Install gyro and the zig toolchain

Gyro is a zig package manager. It is used by zupper to manage dependencies.

Zupper requires the development version of Zig (0.11.0). Make sure you install one of the latest versions of Zig.

  1. Build it!
gyro build -Drelease-fast -p ~/.local


I'll be honest here, I got no idea.

You should be able to do it in a similar fashion to Linux.


It might work if you can get the dependencies working. Maybe, I'll add static linking some day.

As for now, good luck lol.
