Conan Extended C/C++ package manager

Project description

ConanEx - Conan Extended, conan that more decentralize


What it allows ?

Consider the following conanfile.txt:



# flatbuffers/2.0.0 { git = "", tag = "v2.0.0" }

# flatbuffers/2.0.0 { zip = "" }

flatbuffers/2.0.0 { zip = "" }

# flatbuffers/2.0.0 { conan = "" }

# CTRE/3.6 { git = "" }

# CTRE/3.6 { path = "../../../../compile-time-regular-expressions" }

ctre/3.6 { remote = "conancenter" }




As you can see in this file we have 5 additional ways to install package

Lets describe them:

  1. git allow to download package using Git and run located in root directory

  2. zip (url/path) allow installing package from archive, unpack it and run located in root directory.

    There are the following formats that supported: zip, tar.gz, tar.bz2

  3. conan (url/path) if you receipt is completely independent, then you could specify url/path to it to create package.

    Independent means that receipt could download source files by itself.

  4. path allow to install package from folder

  5. remote specify separate remote for this particular package

To install conanex:

python3 -m pip install conanex

To use conanex use it the same way you use conan:

conanex install <path_to_conanfile.txt> -pr=<path_to_profile>

If you are using cmake-conan:

if(NOT EXISTS "${CMAKE_BINARY_DIR}/conan.cmake")

    message(STATUS "Downloading conan.cmake from")

    file(DOWNLOAD ""


         TLS_VERIFY ON)



set(CONAN_COMMAND conanex)



                    BUILD missing

                    REMOTE conancenter

                    SETTINGS ${settings})

Only thing you need is to specify set(CONAN_COMMAND conanex) before any conan command
