Conjugates is available on the general registry. To install, simply do

Conjugates.jl is a simple little utility for doing algebraic operations between an object and its ‘conjugate’, either Hermitian conjugate or transpose. Conjugates.jl exports hc, standing for Hermitian conjugate and tp, standing for transpose which act like algebraic objects
