For Users

Basic setup

$ conan install boost/[email protected]/stable

Project setup

If you handle multiple dependencies in your project is better to add a conanfile.txt

boost/[email protected]/stable


Complete the installation of requirements for your project running:

$ mkdir build && cd build && conan install ..

Note: It is recommended that you run conan install from a build directory and not the root of the project directory. This is because conan generates conanbuildinfo files specific to a single build configuration which by default comes from an autodetected default profile located in ~/.conan/profiles/default . If you pass different build configuration options to conan install, it will generate different conanbuildinfo files. Thus, they should not be added to the root of the project, nor committed to git.

Build and package

The following command both runs all the steps of the conan file, and publishes the package to the local system cache. This includes downloading dependencies from "build_requires" and "requires" , and then running the build() method.

$ conan create . conan/stable
