Vcpkg: a tool to acquire and build C++ open source libraries on Windows
We are delighted to announce the availability of Vcpkg on GitHub https://github.com/Microsoft/vcpkg . Vcpkg simplifies acquiring and building open source libraries on Windows.
Acquiring native libraries on Windows is a critical part of the application development process; in our surveys, you told us that 80% of your C++ projects depend on two or more libraries. Despite this, we’ve heard that the current process for acquiring native libraries falls below C++ developers’ expectations when compared to other platforms such as Mac (Homebrew) and Linux (apt-get, yum, etc.)
