Generators

Generators are specific components that provide the information of dependencies calculated by Conan in a suitable format for a build system. They normally provide Conan users with a conanbuildinfo.XXX file that can be included or injected to the specific build system. The file generated contains information of dependencies in form of different variables and sometimes function helpers too.

You can specify a generator in:

Available generators:

.. toctree::
   :maxdepth: 1

   generators/cmake
   generators/cmakemulti
   generators/cmake_paths
   generators/cmake_find_package
   generators/cmake_find_package_multi
   generators/visualstudio
   generators/visualstudiomulti
   generators/visualstudiolegacy
   generators/xcode
   generators/compiler_args
   generators/gcc
   generators/boost_build
   generators/b2
   generators/qbs

Important

If none of these generators fit your needs, you can create your own :ref:`custom_generator`.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
