biicode: A cross-platform C/C++ dependency manager

biicode provides file-based dependency management for C and C++ languages. Just #include what you need
and biicode will download, setup, and build the required libraries.

biicode uses CMake under the hood, which makes easy adding existing projects to the biicode system, everything
in a cross-platform way.

Always wanted the power of pip or maven when dealing with large C/C++ codebases? biicode is the tool for you.

To install biicode, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install biicode

To upgrade biicode, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade biicode

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.

Release Notes

2.8 (7-Apr-2015)

  • Better computation of binary targets, if an executable does not depend on its own block library, it will not be linked
  • Removed automatic creation of cmake_dummy.cpp to avoid problems with header only libraries
  • Removed automatic handling of system deps (math, pthread, winsock), that created problems in new toolchains. Now users directly specify in CMakeLists their libs.
  • ADDBIICODETARGETS() has been superseded by ADDBIITARGETS(), which will admit a biicode version number, this is done to achieve backwards compatibility while introducing new build behavior.
  • Fixed bug of include paths missing in [tests] targets
  • Fixed extra verbose message of warning about full path #includes
  • Optimized performance of ignore.bii for large number of patterns, that was incredibly slow
  • Now published blocks show publisher's user name
  • Security fixes
