Nuget in C++ rulez

I haven't been programming in C++ for a very long time and I didn't expect that I would do it professionally in the foreseeable future. However, the life has different plans ;) Recently, I've joined an extremely interesting project in the area of the computer vision. In a while I'll try to write something about it.

Nonetheless, in this project I'll develop in C++ so I decided to prepare myself the environment. Among others I need Boost and Eigen libraries in order to compile a project. I was worried that it would take me a lot of time because from the old times I remembere problems with the configuration of C++ projects, linking etc.

At that point I thought that it would be great to have something like Nuget in C++ and be able to just write install-package boost in the package manager console. And you know what?

You can use Nuget with C++ and it simply works!

I was so suprised! In no time I installed everything what was required and I didn't have to do anything else. It's simply amazing.

Hi,

You may prepare video tutorial - I'm pretty sure it will encourage some C#/Java/Python/etc. devs to give C++ a try and Boost ( ;) ) their careers.

Cheers,
