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
- Install conan:
$ pip install 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 python and pip, search in google instructions for your operating system.
Clone conan repository
$ git clone https://github.com/conan-io/conan.git
Install python requirements
For running the client:
$ sudo pip install -r conans/requirements.txt
In OSX you should also install:
$ sudo pip install -r conans/requirements_osx.txt
$ sudo apt-get install python-dev $ sudo pip install -r conans/requirements_server.txt
Development (for running the tests):
$ sudo pip install -r conans/requirements_dev.txt
If you are in Windows, using sudo is not required.
Running the tests
Make sure that the Python requirements for testing have been installed, as explained above.
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.integration.flat_requirements_test --nocapture
The --nocapture argument can be useful to see some output that otherwise is captured by nosetests.
Create a launcher
Conan entry point is “conans.conan.main” module. Fill the absolute path of the cloned repository folder:
#!/usr/bin/env python import sys sys.path.append('/home/user/conan') # EDIT!! from conans.conan import main main(sys.argv[1:])
If you are a Windows user, you can name this file “conan.py” and create a file “conan.bat” that calls the python module:
CALL python C:/Users/user/conan.py %*
Then add that ‘conan’ file to your PATH and you are ready:
$ conan --help Conan commands. Type $conan "command" -h for help build calls your project conanfile.py "build" method. export copies a conanfile.py and associated (export) files to your local store, install install in the local store the given requirements. remove Remove any folder from your local/remote store search show local/remote packages test build and run your package test. Must have conanfile.py with "test" upload uploads a conanfile or binary packages from the local store to any remote. user shows or change the current user
