    If OP doesn't want to bother with the all the Conan pre-configuration commands and scripts, there's a really convenient script to embed everything Conan-related inside your CMakeLists, only asking for the path to conan.exe during CMake-configuration step: https://github.com/conan-io/cmake-conan

  • Best way to manage dependencies with c++?

    I always wanted to try to use cmake-conan so I could let Conan grab all packages but have a neat cmake script being in charge of what gets built when. Also, this would allow me to easily switch between CMake fetchcontent and Conan packages that may or may not be stashed automatically on a local Artifactory server. Secondly, since now all build requirements are stashed on a server and binary reproducible, you could concider adding icecream and ccache into the mix. (Try running a node one of your buildservers for massive speadups with icecream) This however does require a reproducible build environment (by configure script) which conan again is really good in.
