JFrog launches free ConanCenter to improve C/C++ package search, discovery
JFrog has announced the launch of the free ConanCenter, enabling better search and discovery while streamlining C/C++ package management. Conan is an open-source, decentralized, and multi-platform package manager for developers to create and share native binaries.
JFrog currently offers an end-to-end solution covering the full lifecycle of developers’ Conan C/C++ packages from development and artefact flow control, to distribution. JFrog’s new ConanCenter will provide comprehensive tools, such as -
· Simple, faster search and discovery of C and C++ libraries
· Better search UX and an easy to find list of configuration options
· Recipe information available upfront
· Backed by a free binary building service for multiple OS's, architectures and compilers
With more and more industries integrating onto Conan, including automotive, robotics, IoT, and healthcare, JFrog’s newly updated ConanCenter represents an important step in giving developers access to a curated and robust central public repository, with open source, high quality trusted C/C++ packages. In Q1 2020, JFrog plans to integrate the Center with other JFrog tools and make it even easier to securely access all available packages. ConanCenter also provides a free Artifactory Community Edition for C / C++ for download.
"Making open source C and C++ libraries easy to search and consume by developers is critical for the health of the ecosystem, and the new ConanCenter is a step in the right direction,” said Diego Rodriguez-Losada Gonzalez, Conan C/C++ Package Manager co-creator.
“The new ConanCenter is empowered by the C/C++ community and used as a platform to publish and share C/C++ libraries through an open source, multi-platform package manager that streamlines how developers utilize these libraries. Most of the IoT world uses C/C++ and JFrog wants to enable DevOps for the IoT community in our next leap”, said Yoav Landman, JFrog CTO.
