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 is able to 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 exactly the same way in all platforms.
- Integrates with any build system, including any propietary 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 a great power and flexibility.
- Large and active community, specially in Github (https://github.com/conan-io/conan) and Slack (https://cpplang.now.sh/ #conan channel). This community also create and maintains packages in Conan-center and Bincrafters repositories in Bintray.
- Stable. Used in production by many companies, since 1.0 there is a committment not to break package recipes and documented behavior.
We have installers for most platforms here but you can run conan from sources if you want.
Conan is compatible with Python 2 and Python 3.
Install pip following pip docs.
$ pip install conan
You can also use test.pypi.org repository to install development (non-stable) Conan versions:
$ pip install --index-url https://test.pypi.org/simple/ conan
From Homebrew (OSx)
Install Homebrew following brew homepage.
$ brew update $ brew install conan
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
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 recipe (conanfile.py) located in 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 to 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. copy Copies conan recipes and packages to another user/channel. remove Removes packages or binaries matching pattern from local cache or remote. alias Creates and exports an 'alias recipe'. download Downloads recipe and binaries to the local cache, without using settings. Conan commands. Type "conan <command> -h" for help

Running the tests
It will install the needed requirements and launch nose skipping some heavy and slow test. If you want to run the full test suite:
$ tox -e full
Install python requirements
$ pip install -r conans/requirements.txt $ pip install -r conans/requirements_server.txt $ pip install -r conans/requirements_dev.txt
Only in OSX:
$ pip install -r conans/requirements_osx.txt # You can omit this one if not running OSX
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
Finally, there are some tests that use conan to package Go-lang libraries, so you might need to install go-lang in your computer and add it to the path.
You can run the actual tests like this:
$ nosetests .
There are a couple of test attributes defined, as slow, or golang that you can use to filter the tests, and do not execute them:
$ nosetests . -a !golang
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:
$ nosetests conans.test.command.config_install_test:ConfigInstallTest.install_file_test --nocapture
The --nocapture argument can be useful to see some output that otherwise is captured by nosetests.
