Meson build system for zstandard

Meson is a build system designed to optimize programmer productivity. It aims to do this by providing simple, out-of-the-box support for modern software development tools and practices, such as unit tests, coverage reports, Valgrind, CCache and the like.

This Meson build system is provided with no guarantee and maintained by Dima Krasner <>.

It outputs one libzstd, either shared or static, depending on default_library option.

How to build

cd to this meson directory (build/meson)

meson setup -Dbin_programs=true -Dbin_contrib=true builddir
cd builddir
ninja             # to build
ninja install     # to install

You might want to install it in staging directory:

DESTDIR=./staging ninja install

To configure build options, use:

meson configure

See man meson(1).
