Conan is a package manager for C and C++ developers:

- It is fully decentralized. Users can host their packages on their servers, privately. Integrates with Artifactory and Bintray.
- Portable. Works across all platforms, including Linux, OSX, Windows (with native and first-class support, WSL, MinGW),
  Solaris, FreeBSD, embedded and cross-compiling, docker, WSL
- Manage binaries. It can create, upload and download binaries for any configuration and platform,
  even cross-compiling, saving lots of time in development and continuous integration. The binary compatibility can be configured
  and customized. Manage all your artifacts in the same way on all platforms.
- Integrates with any build system, including any proprietary and custom one. Provides tested support for major build systems
  (CMake, MSBuild, Makefiles, Meson, etc).
- Extensible: Its python based recipes, together with extensions points allows for great power and flexibility.
- Large and active community, especially in Github ( and Slack ( #conan channel).
  This community also creates and maintains packages in ConanCenter and Bincrafters repositories in Bintray.
- Stable. Used in production by many companies, since 1.0 there is a commitment not to break package recipes and documented behavior.

Please read to know how to
install and start using Conan. TL;DR:

.. code-block::

   $ pip install conan

Install a development version

You can run **Conan** client and server in Windows, MacOS, and Linux.

- **Install pip following** `pip docs`_.

- **Clone Conan repository:**

  .. code-block:: bash

      $ git clone conan-io

 NOTE: repository directory name matters, some directories are known to be problematic to run tests (e.g. `conan`). `conan-io` directory name was tested and guaranteed to be working.

- **Install in editable mode**

  .. code-block:: bash

      $ cd conan-io && sudo pip install -e .

  If you are in Windows, using ``sudo`` is not required.

- **You are ready, try to run Conan:**

  .. code-block::

    $ conan --help

      build      Calls your local 'build()' method.
      package    Calls your local 'package()' method.
      editable   Manages editable packages (packages that reside in the user workspace, but are
                 consumed as if they were in the cache).
      workspace  Manages a workspace (a set of packages consumed from the user workspace that
                 belongs to the same project).
    Misc commands
      profile    Lists profiles in the '.conan/profiles' folder, or shows profile details.

Contributing to the project

Feedback and contribution are always welcome in this project.
Please read our `contributing guide <>`_.
Also, if you plan to contribute, please add some testing for your changes. You can read the `Conan
tests guidelines section <>`_ for
some advise on how to write tests for Conan.

Running the tests

Using tox

.. code-block:: bash

    $ python -m tox

It will install the needed requirements and launch `pytest` skipping some heavy and slow tests.
If you want to run the full test suite:

.. code-block:: bash

    $ python -m tox -e full

Without tox

**Install python requirements**

.. code-block:: bash

    $ python -m pip install -r conans/requirements.txt
    $ python -m pip install -r conans/requirements_server.txt
    $ python -m pip install -r conans/requirements_dev.txt

If you are not Windows and you are not using a python virtual environment, you will need to run these
commands using `sudo`.

Before you can run the tests, you need to set a few environment variables first.

.. code-block:: bash

    $ export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:$(pwd)

On Windows it would be (while being in the Conan root directory):

.. code-block:: bash

    $ set PYTHONPATH=.

Ensure that your ``cmake`` has version 2.8 or later. You can see the
version with the following command:

.. code-block:: bash

    $ cmake --version

The appropriate values of ``CONAN_COMPILER`` and ``CONAN_COMPILER_VERSION`` depend on your
operating system and your requirements.

These should work for the GCC from ``build-essential`` on Ubuntu 14.04:

.. code-block:: bash

    $ export CONAN_COMPILER=gcc

These should work for OS X:

.. code-block:: bash

    $ export CONAN_COMPILER=clang

You can run the actual tests like this:

.. code-block:: bash

    $ python -m pytest .

There are a couple of test attributes defined, as ``slow`` that you can use
to filter the tests, and do not execute them:

.. code-block:: bash

    $ python -m pytest . -m "not slow"

A few minutes later it should print ``OK``:

.. code-block:: bash

    Ran 146 tests in 50.993s


To run specific tests, you can specify the test name too, something like:

.. code-block:: bash

    $ python -m pytest conans/test/unittests/client/cmd/ -s

The ``-s`` argument can be useful to see some output that otherwise is captured by pytest.

Also, you can run tests against an instance of Artifactory. Those tests should add the attribute

.. code-block:: bash

    $ python -m pytest . -m artifactory_ready

Some environment variables have to be defined to run them. For example, for an
Artifactory instance that is running on the localhost with default user and password configured, the
variables could take the values:

.. code-block:: bash

    $ export ARTIFACTORY_DEFAULT_URL=http://localhost:8081/artifactory

``ARTIFACTORY_DEFAULT_URL`` is the base url for the Artifactory repo, not one for a specific
repository. Running the tests with a real Artifactory instance will create repos on the fly so please
use a separate server for testing purposes.
