  • Binary Banshees and Digital Demons [as a cautionary tale from C++ land]
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-09-23
    I think the great hero in Rust that solves this conflict is crater. With the visibility it provides into the Rust ecosystem, it turns the absolute "breaking change bad" into a negotiable "how much breakage can we tolerate". Some repositories of libraries similar to crates.io have appeared in the C++ world (e.g. JFrog ConanCenter), and I wager that something similar to crater would help.

    Well, https://vcpkg.io/en/packages.html and https://conan.io/center/, plus you get to do like Java, getting the libraries distributed as compiled code.

  • How do u search for a type of library other than writing "C++ XXX library" on google? or is that enough?
    you may have a look at C++ package managers, like conan: https://conan.io/center/

    To pick on the sibiling comment, these are the C++ versions of crates.io.

    https://conan.io/center/

    Plus they can also host binary packages, so you don't have to build the world, just your own stuff.

    For some of us that matters.

  • Using package managers for cross-platform development (your testimonies ?)
    Furthermore, Qt is, as you know, complex to build, so the Conan recipe packaging Qt will not be an obvious one. It has been added recently to the ConanCenter, so it will sure keep evolving, reporting it in conan-center-index repo, and trying to work with the community there to improve support for MinGW is probably the way to go. Note that there have been more than 4k PRs in the repo so far (1.5 years), so the community really works to improve things. Also it seems that Qt themselves are using Conan so at some point their Conan support will become more mainstream and stable, but at the moment, not mainstream compilers as MinGW will get limited support.

    - MinGW will probably be added at some point, this open PR is green: https://github.com/conan-io/conan-center-index/pull/4327
  • All C++20 core language features with examples
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-07
    - The public repo for ConanCenter packages, got aprox +3500 pull requests in last year https://github.com/conan-io/conan-center-index/pulls. This doesn't count for contribution to the tool itself.
  • Getting GLAD with Conan
    reddit.com/r/opengl | 2021-03-01
    I'm trying to brush up on my opengl knowledge by rushing through learnopengl once more. I would like to try and use conan to manage my dependencies.
  • Getting CMake and Conan To Find Boost
    reddit.com/r/cpp | 2021-02-05
    I've found it depends on the package - Boost and PySide11 work, for instance. Others don't. I've been led to understand fixing these issues is an ongoing effort by the maintainers - many of the older package recipes were written before this sort of functionality was possible. The worst case scenario is to report it on the issue tracker and hack around it with a big fat FIXME until it's taken care of. Or dive into the recipe and submit a PR on the conan-center-index repo :-)
