Packages in editable mode #1

  
Updated May 3, 2019
This feature will allow Conan users to work simultaneously in several packages. We will let the user to install a package in editable mode so its changes affect to the consuming projects without the need of executing any Conan command.

This feature will allow Conan users to work simultaneously in several packages. We will let the user to install a package in editable mode so its changes affect to the consuming projects without the need of executing any Conan command.

Ideas:

  • it should work like the Python's pip install -e <working-copy>,
  • it will be used by all Conan commands working on the same cache,
  • it will affect only one full reference (i.e.: there can several editable packages for the same library with different channel)
  • it won't execute anything behind the scenes: the user should compile the library (IDE, cli,...) to get an updated .lib.

Implemented in branch https://github.com/conan-io/conan/tree/feature/editable-packages
