What is Zed?

Zed is a high-performance, multiplayer code editor from the creators of Atom and Tree-sitter. It's also open source.

Key Feature:

  • Stay in Flow - Productive coding starts with a tool that stays out of your way. Zed combines the power of an IDE with the responsiveness of a lightweight editor for productivity you can feel under your fingertips.
  • Engineered for performance - Zed efficiently leverages every CPU core and your GPU to start instantly, load files in a blink, and respond to your keystrokes on the next display refresh. Unrelenting performance keeps you in flow and makes other tools feel slow.
  • Intelligence on tap - Save time and keystrokes by generating code with AI. Zed supports GitHub Copilot out of the box, and you can use GPT-4 to generate or refactor code by pressing ctrl-enter and typing a natural language prompt. Interact with the model conversationally without switching context in the built-in assistant panel, then reference your conversation during inline generation.
  • Language-aware - Zed maintains a full syntax tree for every buffer as you type, enabling precise code highlighting, auto-indent, a searchable outline view, and structural selection. Zed also speaks the Language Server Protocol to provide autocompletion, code navigation, diagnostics, and refactorings.
