The decentralized C++ package manager.

Why Buckaroo?

Package managers like Yarn and Cargo have shown how productive developers can be when they can easily integrate a large ecosystem of projects. Buckaroo fills this gap for C++.

The Buckaroo workflow looks like this:

# Create your project file
$ buckaroo init

# Install dependencies
$ buckaroo add github.com/buckaroo-pm/boost-thread@branch=master

# Run your code
$ buck run :my-app

We have an FAQ.


C++ has unique requirements, so Buckaroo is a highly sophisticated piece of software.

  • Pull dependencies directly from GitHub, BitBucket, GitLab, hosted Git and HTTP
  • Fully reproducible builds and dependency resolution
  • Completely decentralized - there is no central server or publishing process
  • Allows any build configuration (even on a package-by-package basis)
  • Private and public dependencies to avoid "dependency hell"
  • Multiple libraries per package, so tools like Lerna are unnecessary
  • Pull individual packages out of mono-repos
  • Full support for semantic versioning (but only when you want it!)
  • Live at head! Move fast by depending directly on Git branches, but in a controlled way
  • Blazing fast resolution using clever heuristics
  • Version equivalency checks to reduce dependency conflicts
  • TOML configuration files for convenient editing by computers and humans
  • Works offline (with a populated cache)
  • Enable Upgrade Bot to keep everything up-to-date with a single click

How Buckaroo Works

The Buckaroo model is very simple. Packages live in source-control, and a manifest file is used to describe dependencies. This points to further manifests to create a dependency graph. Buckaroo works directly over Git and HTTP.
