Conan C/C++ package manager

Project description

Logo

Conan

Decentralized, open-source (MIT), C/C++ package manager.

Conan is a package manager for C and C++ developers:

  • It is fully decentralized. Users can host their packages in their servers, privately. Integrates with Artifactory and Bintray.
  • Portable. Works across all platforms, including Linux, OSX, Windows (with native and first-class support, WSL, MinGW), Solaris, FreeBSD, embedded and cross-compiling, docker, WSL
  • Manage binaries. It can create, upload and download binaries for any configuration and platform, even cross-compiling, saving lots of time in development and continuous integration. The binary compatibility can be configured and customized. Manage all your artifacts in the same way on all platforms.
  • Integrates with any build system, including any proprietary and custom one. Provides tested support for major build systems (CMake, MSBuild, Makefiles, Meson, etc).
  • Extensible: Its python based recipes, together with extensions points allows for great power and flexibility.
  • Large and active community, especially in Github (https://github.com/conan-io/conan) and Slack (https://cpplang-inviter.cppalliance.org/ #conan channel). This community also creates and maintains packages in ConanCenter and Bincrafters repositories in Bintray.
  • Stable. Used in production by many companies, since 1.0 there is a commitment not to break package recipes and documented behavior.

Setup

Please read https://docs.conan.io/en/latest/installation.html to know how to install and start using Conan. TL;DR:

$ pip install conan

Install a development version

You can run Conan client and server in Windows, MacOS, and Linux.

  • Install pip following pip docs.

  • Clone Conan repository:

    $ git clone https://github.com/conan-io/conan.git conan-io
    
NOTE: repository directory name matters, some directories are known to be problematic to run tests (e.g. conan). conan-io directory name was tested and guaranteed to be working.
  • Install in editable mode

    $ cd conan && sudo pip install -e .
    

    If you are in Windows, using sudo is not required.

  • You are ready, try to run Conan:

    $ conan --help
    
    Consumer commands
      install    Installs the requirements specified in a conanfile (.py or .txt).
      config     Manages configuration. Edits the conan.conf or installs config files.
      get        Gets a file or list a directory of a given reference or package.
      info       Gets information about the dependency graph of a recipe.
      search     Searches package recipes and binaries in the local cache or in a remote.
    Creator commands
      new        Creates a new package recipe template with a 'conanfile.py'.
      create     Builds a binary package for a recipe (conanfile.py) located in the current dir.
      upload     Uploads a recipe and binary packages to a remote.
      export     Copies the recipe (conanfile.py & associated files) to your local cache.
      export-pkg Exports a recipe & creates a package with given files calling 'package'.
      test       Test a package, consuming it with a conanfile recipe with a test() method.
    Package development commands
      source     Calls your local conanfile.py 'source()' method.
      build      Calls your local conanfile.py 'build()' method.
      package    Calls your local conanfile.py 'package()' method.
    Misc commands
      profile    Lists profiles in the '.conan/profiles' folder, or shows profile details.
      remote     Manages the remote list and the package recipes associated with a remote.
      user       Authenticates against a remote with user/pass, caching the auth token.
      imports    Calls your local conanfile.py or conanfile.txt 'imports' method.

Running the tests

Using tox

$ python -m tox

It will install the needed requirements and launch pytest skipping some heavy and slow tests. If you want to run the full test suite:

$ python -m tox -e full

Without tox

Install python requirements

$ python -m pip install -r conans/requirements.txt
$ python -m pip install -r conans/requirements_server.txt
$ python -m pip install -r conans/requirements_dev.txt

If you are not Windows and you are not using a python virtual environment, you will need to run these commands using sudo.

Before you can run the tests, you need to set a few environment variables first.

$ export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:$(pwd)

On Windows it would be (while being in the Conan root directory):

$ set PYTHONPATH=.

Ensure that your cmake has version 2.8 or later. You can see the version with the following command:

$ cmake --version

The appropriate values of CONAN_COMPILER and CONAN_COMPILER_VERSION depend on your operating system and your requirements.

These should work for the GCC from build-essential on Ubuntu 14.04:

$ export CONAN_COMPILER=gcc
$ export CONAN_COMPILER_VERSION=4.8

These should work for OS X:

$ export CONAN_COMPILER=clang
$ export CONAN_COMPILER_VERSION=3.5

You can run the actual tests like this:

$ python -m pytest .

There are a couple of test attributes defined, as slow that you can use to filter the tests, and do not execute them:

$ python -m pytest . -m "not slow"

A few minutes later it should print OK:

............................................................................................
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Ran 146 tests in 50.993s

OK

To run specific tests, you can specify the test name too, something like:

$ python -m pytest conans/test/unittests/client/cmd/export_test.py::ExportTest::test_export_warning -s

The -s argument can be useful to see some output that otherwise is captured by pytest.

Also, you can run tests against an instance of Artifactory. Those tests should add the attribute artifactory_ready.

$ python -m pytest . -m artifactory_ready

Some environment variables have to be defined to run them. For example, for an Artifactory instance that is running on the localhost with default user and password configured, the variables could take the values:

$ export CONAN_TEST_WITH_ARTIFACTORY=1
$ export ARTIFACTORY_DEFAULT_URL=http://localhost:8081/artifactory
$ export ARTIFACTORY_DEFAULT_USER=admin
$ export ARTIFACTORY_DEFAULT_PASSWORD=password

ARTIFACTORY_DEFAULT_URL is the base url for the Artifactory repo, not one for an specific repository. Running the tests with a real Artifactory instance will create repos on the fly so please use a separate server for testing purposes.
