I often see that C++ was said to be a difficult language, and I saw many people who shun it just because of C++. It was thought that it is hard to construct an environment, there is no definitive package manager, and the strange syntax of the build system CMake, etc. is the cause that makes us feel hesitant.
By developing a package manager and build system that has an intuitive and easy-to-use interface like npm and Cargo, and users can develop applications and libraries without being aware of CMake, you can focus on learning C++ without being stumble. I also plan to implement integration with many other build systems and package managers, so you should be able to switch seamlessly.
