Description

Name: Blaze (blaze-lib)

Homepage: https://bitbucket.org/blaze-lib/blaze

Description:
As a university student on masters course in Computer Science use this program in a lot of my C++ project and would be delighted to see this included in Solus package repository. I hope it is possible. I haven't found any replacement for this package, nor any request for it so far. Excerpt from their own description:

Blaze is an open-source, high-performance C++ math library for dense and sparse arithmetic. With its state-of-the-art Smart Expression Template implementation Blaze combines the elegance and ease of use of a domain-specific language with HPC-grade performance, making it one of the most intuitive and fastest C++ math libraries available.

Open Source: Yes

License: New (Revised) BSD

Latest stable source release: https://bitbucket.org/blaze-lib/blaze/downloads/blaze-3.2.tar.gz

Anticipated user base: To be perfectly honest I don't think there will be a whole lot of users that will use this package. However I still hope that you will be able to spare some time to include it as it would be much easier for me, and maybe few other users, to get it directly using eopkg instead of building it from scratch.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that Blaze depends on BLAS and LAPACK libraries, I found OpenBlas, but couldn't find LAPACK in software manager.

Thanks in advance and sorry for bothering you if you feel that you don't have a need for it in your repository. Also this is my first package request, so if I did something wrong I would be really grateful if you told me so.

OpenBLAS provides LAPACK functionality in Solus. No separate library needed.

Ideally I'd like to see something use this instead of just having a loose library for development, but I also know how much of a pain scientific libraries can be to build.

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for 6 months now. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
