These tools are experimental and subject to breaking changes. This layout is ongoing work, will need more feedback and development to be complete.

For example, this would implement the standard Meson project layout:

from import meson_layout

def layout(self):

If you want to try it, use the conan new hello/0.1 --template=meson_lib template.

The current layout implementation is very simple, if you use Meson, please give feedback of the expected layout for different platforms:

def meson_layout(conanfile): = "build-{}".format(str(conanfile.settings.build_type).lower()) = ["."] = ["."]
