What is Pigweed?#


Over 150 libraries (“modules”) enabling you to use modern C++ and software development best practices without compromising performance, code size, or memory


Easier automated building, testing, and linting for Bazel, GN, and CMake projects


Hermetic and replicable development environments for your entire team - no more struggling with toolchains and “it worked on my machine”


Turnkey solutions for new projects that want to make full use of everything that Pigweed offers

Who’s using Pigweed?#

Pigweed has shipped on millions of devices.

Showcase: pw_console#

pw_console is our multi-purpose, pluggable REPL and log viewer. It’s designed to be a complete development and manufacturing solution for interacting with hardware devices via pw_rpc over a pw_hdlc transport. Gone are the days of hacking together a REPL and log viewer for each new project!

What’s new in Pigweed#

Highlights (May 30, 2024 to Jun 13, 2024):

pw_malloc now supports pw_allocator-based backends.

  • New pw_build Bazel rules: pw_py_test rule wraps py_test, pw_elf_to_dump takes a binary executable and produces a text file containing the full binary layout, and pw_elf_to_bin rule takes a binary executable and produces a file with all ELF headers removed.

  • Improved Fish shell support: The pw and pw build commands now support Fish shell completion. The new bootstrap.fish script demonstrates how to bootstrap a Pigweed project from a Fish shell and makes it easier for Fish users to contribute to upstream Pigweed.

  • More informative modules index: The modules index now shoes useful metadata for each module, such as a summary of the module’s purpose and the programming languages that the module supports.

See Jun 13, 2024 in our changelog for details.
