conan-boost

Conan package for Boost library

Thanks to @DavidZemon for the huge help with cross-building support!

The packages generated with this conanfile can be found on bintray.

Reuse the packages

Basic setup

$ conan install boost/1.68.0@conan/stable

Project setup

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

[requires]
boost/1.68.0@conan/stable

[options]
boost:shared=True # False
# Take a look for all available options in conanfile.py

[generators]
cmake

Complete the installation of requirements for your project running:

conan install .

Project setup installs the library (and all his dependencies) and generates the files conanbuildinfo.txt and conanbuildinfo.cmake with all the paths and variables that you need to link with your dependencies.

Follow the Conan getting started: http://docs.conan.io

Cross building

The package works cross compiled to ARM, tested from windows, using the SYSGCC toolchain and the following profile:

target_host=arm-linux-gnueabihf
standalone_toolchain=C:/sysgcc/raspberry
cc_compiler=gcc
cxx_compiler=g++

[settings]
os=Linux
arch=armv7
compiler=gcc
compiler.version=6
compiler.libcxx=libstdc++
build_type=Release

[env]
CONAN_CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH=$standalone_toolchain/$target_host/sysroot
SYSROOT=$standalone_toolchain/$target_host/sysroot
PATH=[$standalone_toolchain/bin]
CHOST=$target_host
AR=$target_host-ar
AS=$target_host-as
RANLIB=$target_host-ranlib
LD=$target_host-ld
STRIP=$target_host-strip
CC=$target_host-$cc_compiler
CXX=$target_host-$cxx_compiler
CXXFLAGS=-I"$standalone_toolchain/$target_host/lib/include"

Apply the profile when running "conan install" or "conan create" with --profile option.
