Alpine Linux maintainers are waiting for zig to release 1.0 before zig is merged into stable.
As such, mepo is not available in the postmarketOS/Alpine stable repositories.
You can use flatpak to install mepo.
If you don't want to install flatpak, here is how you can compile mepo from source on Alpine/postmarketOS stable:

1. Install the `makedepends` and `depends` packages from the [APKBUILD]( https://git.alpinelinux.org/aports/tree/testing/mepo?h=master).
2. Download and unpack `zig-linux-<your-arch>-<version>.tar.xz` from the [ziglang website](https://ziglang.org/download/). Once unpacked, the `zig` binary in the `zig-linux-<your-arch>-<version>` folder is your zig compiler.
3. Get and build the mepo source: `git clone https://git.sr.ht/~mil/mepo && cd mepo && ../zig-linux-<your-arch>-<version>/zig build`.
