Tag: dependencies Parent: ivy-module

Container for dependency elements, used to describe the dependencies of this module.
If this container is not present, it is assumed that the module has no dependency at all.

This container provides for two similar behaviors. An overview is given here. (See configurations doc page for more details about these behaviors).

since 1.1
Defines the conf attribute to use when no conf is defined for a dependency in this ivy file. It is only used when no conf mapping is defined, and has no influence in other cases.

since 1.3
Influences the way that a conf mapping with no mapped conf is interpreted.

In Ivy 2.1.0 and earlier, if both defaultconf and defaultconfmapping are defined, it's the defaultconfmapping that is used. Since Ivy 2.2.0, these attributes can be used together.
