makeΒΆ

This is the reference page for make generator. Go to Integrations/make if you want to learn how to integrate your project or recipes with make.

This generators creates a file named conanbuildinfo.mak with information of dependencies in different variables that can be used for your make builds.

VariablesΒΆ

Variables per package. The <PKG-NAME> placeholder is filled with the name of the Conan package.

NAME VALUE
CONAN_ROOT_<PKG-NAME> Absolute path to root package folder
CONAN_SYSROOT_<PKG-NAME> System root folder
CONAN_INCLUDE_DIRS_<PKG-NAME> Headers folders
CONAN_LIB_DIRS_<PKG-NAME> Library folders
CONAN_BIN_DIRS_<PKG-NAME> Binary folders
CONAN_BUILD_DIRS_<PKG-NAME> Build folders
CONAN_RES_DIRS_<PKG-NAME> Resources folders
CONAN_LIBS_<PKG-NAME> Library names to link with
CONAN_DEFINES_<PKG-NAME> Library definitions
CONAN_CFLAGS_<PKG-NAME> Options for the C compiler (-g, -s, -m64, -m32, -fPIC)
CONAN_CXXFLAGS_<PKG-NAME> Options for the C++ compiler (-g, -s, -stdlib, -m64, -m32, -fPIC, -std)
CONAN_SHAREDLINKFLAGS_<PKG-NAME> Library Shared linker flags
CONAN_EXELINK_FLAGS_<PKG-NAME> Executable linker flags

Conan also declares some global variables with the aggregated values of all our requirements. The values are ordered in the right order according to the dependency tree.

NAME VALUE
CONAN_ROOTPATH Aggregated root folders
CONAN_SYSROOT Aggregated system root folders
CONAN_INCLUDE_DIRS Aggregated header folders
CONAN_LIB_DIRS Aggregated library folders
CONAN_BIN_DIRS Aggregated binary folders
CONAN_BUILD_DIRS Aggregated build folders
CONAN_RES_DIRS Aggregated resource folders
CONAN_LIBS Aggregated library names to link with
CONAN_DEFINES Aggregated library definitions
CONAN_CFLAGS Aggregated options for the C compiler
CONAN_CXXFLAGS Aggregated options for the C++ compiler
CONAN_SHAREDLINKFLAGS Aggregated Shared linker flags
CONAN_EXELINKFLAGS Aggregated Executable linker flags

Important

Note that the mapping of the Conan variables to the Make ones is done taking the following rules and we suggest to use the variables indicated under the Makefile column to apply to a common naming:

cpp_info conanbuildinfo.mak Makefile
defines CONAN_DEFINES CPPFLAGS
includedirs CONAN_INCLUDE_DIRS CPPFLAGS
libdirs CONAN_LIB_DIRS LDFLAGS
libs CONAN_LIBS LDLIBS
cflags CONAN_CFLAGS CFLAGS
cxxflags CONAN_CXXFLAGS CXXFLAGS
