vcpkg is now cross platform and support Linux MacOS and Windows

App Center Team

At Microsoft, the core of our vision is “Any Developer, Any App, Any Platform” and we are committed to bringing you the most productive development tools and services to build your apps across all platforms. With this in mind, we are thrilled to announce today the availability of vcpkg on Linux and MacOS. This gives you immediate access to the vcpkg catalog of C++ libraries on two new platforms, with the same simple steps you are familiar with on Windows and UWP today.

Vcpkg has come a long way since its launch at CppCon 2016. Starting from only 20 libraries, we have seen an incredible growth in the last 19 months with over 900 libraries and features now available. All credit goes to the invaluable contributions from our amazing community.
