Vcpkg certainly has gained a lot of traction in the C++ community. Next to conan it is one of the most frequently used dependency and build-script management tools. Nevertheless, when initially investigating this topic for a larger enterprise application I worked on at the time, I jumped onto the conan bandwagon. I had the opportunity to briefly talk to with Diego Gonzalez, one of its creators at Meeting C++ 2019 in Berlin. This was also around the time when JFrog started to financially back conan. These facts and the technical aspects have been reason enough to choose conan over its alternatives. Since then a few years have gone by and I wanted to check the current state of vcpkg. Today it’s got a vibrant community and has expanded it’s feature set significantly.
