Using Chapel Dependencies

There are multiple types of dependencies in Mason. Chapel or “Mason” dependencies are other Mason packages that you want to use in your Mason package.

To search through all the current available Mason packages, use mason search.

Chapel Dependencies are listed under the [dependencies] table in the Mason.toml file of the package as follows:

chplVersion = "1.18.0"
license = "None"
name = "myPackage"
version = "0.1.0"

MatrixMarket = 0.1.0

To add a Chapel dependency without editing the Mason.toml manually, use the mason add command as follows:

mason add MatrixMarket@0.1.0
