Recipe tools

Tools are all things that can be imported and used in Conan recipes.

The import path is always like:

from import CMakeToolchain, CMakeDeps, CMake
from import MSBuildToolchain, MSBuildDeps, MSBuild

The main guidelines are:

  • Everything that recipes can import belong to from Any other thing is private implementation and shouldn’t be used in recipes.

  • Only documented, public (not preceded by _) tools can be used in recipes.
