V , the programming language that is making a lot of success

V or Vlang is a programming language : compiled, general-purpose and statically typed . Launched as an open source project in June 2019 by Alex Medvedniko.

Designed for performance, security and fast compilation. The compiler is written in V and is less than 1MB, it is capable of compiling in less than a second about 1 million lines of code with zero library dependencies.

You can learn everything about the language just by reading the documentation in an hour, and in most cases, there’s only one way to do something.

This results in simple, readable and maintainable code.

Although simple, V gives a lot of power to the developer and can be used in practically all fields, including systems programming: Web Development, Game Development, Graphic Interfaces, Mobile, Science, Embedded Systems, Tools, etc.


You can install using V on almost all possible operating systems, such as: Linux, macOS, Windows, *BSD, Solaris, WSL, Android, Raspbian , …

You will need: Git, gcc and Make .

To install use the commands below in order:

git clone --depth=1
cd v
cd ..
mv v/ /opt
cd /opt/v/
sudo ./v symlink

Then you can test Vlang:

v version

Possible and similar output: V 0.2.4 d826317 .

Hello Vlang!

Let’s test a Hello, World! . Create a .v file, eg nvim hello.v and insert this code:

fn main() {
  println('Hello Vlang!')

Now to run:

v run hello.v

Probable output: Hello Vlang! .

You can also compile and run after generating the binary:

v hello.v

Translating according to other languages

If you are used to C++ this mini table shows operations in Vlang similar to C++:

C++ Vlang
std::vector s; mut s := []
s.push_back("Vis "); s << 'Vis '
s.push_back("awesome"); s << 'awesome'
std::cout << s.size(); println(s.len)

You may notice that Vlang is very similar to Go/Golang . See this table for comparison.
