Cmake package retrieval. This can be used to download and install cmake packages. The advantages of using cget are:

  • Non-intrusive: There is no need to write special hooks in cmake to use cget. One cmake file is written and can be used to install a package with cget or standalone.
  • Works out of the box: Since it uses the standard build and install of cmake, it already works with almost all cmake packages. There is no need to wait for packages to convert over to support cget. Standard cmake packages can be already installed immediately.
  • Decentralized: Packages can be installed from anywhere, from github, urls, or local files.

Getting cget

cget can be simply installed using pip(you can get pip from here):

pip install cget

Or installed directly with python:

python install

On windows, you may want to install pkgconfig-lite to support packages that use pkgconfig. This can be installed with cget as well:

cget install pfultz2/pkgconfig


We can also install cmake packages directly from source files, for example zlib:

cget install

However, its much easier to install recipes so we don't have to remember urls:

cget install pfultz2/cget-recipes

Then we can install packages such as boost:

cget install boost

Or curl:

cget install curl


See here for the latest documentation.

Supported platforms

This is supported on python 2.7, 3.4, and 3.5.
