CDep is a decentralized native package dependency manager with a focus on Android.
Anyone can author a package and there is a growing list of useful packages, such as Freetype 2.0, SDL, ShaderC, STB, RE2 Regular Expressions, Firebase, MathFu, Vectorial, Boost, Yaml-CPP, SQLite, LUA.
CDep comes from members of the Android Studio team and is not an official Google product. It is a work in progress and subject to change over time. Backward compatibility with existing packages will be maintained.
Here are some things you can do to get started with CDep.
Get started with CDep on Windows, enter the following in the command line:
> git clone https://github.com/jomof/cdep-redist.git > cd my-project > ..\cdep-redist\cdep wrapper
After this, the instructions are the same as Linux and Mac.
Get started with CDep on Linux or Mac by following these steps:
$ git clone https://github.com/jomof/cdep-redist.git $ cd my-project $ ../cdep-redist/cdep wrapper
This creates the following files in your local directory (and are meant to be checked into source control):
cdep cdep.bat cdep.yml bootstrap\wrapper\bootstrap.jar
cdep.ymland add the following line:
dependencies: # This line tells CDep that your project depends on SQLite. - compile: com.github.jomof:sqlite:3.16.2-rev51

cdepcommand to download SQLite and generate CMake module for it.
$ ./cdep Generating .cdep/modules/cdep-dependencies-config.cmake
CMakeLists.txtand add the following code at the end of the file. This tells CMake to locate the module glue file and add all the dependencies in that file to
find_package(cdep-dependencies REQUIRED) add_all_cdep_dependencies(your_target_library)
When you call CMake to generate the project you'll need to tell it where to find the glue modules. So something like,
