What is Zap?

Zap takes a different approach. It includes a reflection-free, zero-allocation JSON encoder, and the base Logger strives to avoid serialization overhead and allocations wherever possible. By building the high-level SugaredLogger on that foundation, zap lets users choose when they need to count every allocation and when they'd prefer a more familiar, loosely typed API.
Zap is a tool in the Logging Tools category of a tech stack.
Zap is an open source tool with 10.1K GitHub stars and 766 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Zap's open source repository on GitHub
