[boost] [fusion] constexpr support

Reported by: gonzalobg88@… Owned by: djowel
Milestone: To Be Determined Component: fusion
Version: Boost 1.55.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: constexpr Cc:


Boost.MPL and Boost.Fusion are very useful inside C++14 relaxed constexpr functions. However, this doesn't work out of the box since constexpr functions can only call other constexpr functions.

I have started to mark fusion and mpl functions and types as constexpr within my local Boost copy. This task is pretty big so I am only doing it for the parts of the library that I need to use within constexpr functions.

It would be nice to know what is the best way to proceed (e.g. incremental patches until full support is achieved vs a single patch that enables constexpr support).

That's wonderful! Thank you!

I think the best way to proceed is to send in incremental GIT pull requests. That way, I can have more time to inspect the code.

I've sent the first pull-request, is it fine to discuss the changes there?

I leave a link here for the "people from the future":
