This blog post is a continuation of C++ Libraries — Part I: Design
In this part, we’ll go over the basics of creating a C++ library.
C++ provides multiple ways to create the library code:
(I) and (IV) can be packaged into a package (.o / .a / .so), whereas (II) and (III) have to be provided as source code.
(Notice: The rest of the blog will explain the technical details of creating a library. The examples and instructions assume a Linux-based OS using CMake tool, Windows-based OS have a very similer process)
As mentioned in detail in the “Code…
This blog post goes over the basics of creating a C++ library.

This is Part I of a two part blog post, second part can be found here.
If you’re interested in taking your library creation to the next level, this blog post is for you :)
