    Conan - The open-source C/C++ package manager

    With regard to libraries, then the modern and easiest approach is to use a package manager like Conan or vcpkg. These allow you to install and use multiple different versions of libraries with different options/configurations for different projects. They also integrate easily and non-invasively with your project's build system and they don't tie others to use the same setup.
