Actually CLion is free for those who can show their use is for a FOSS project. I have a licence for Zipios. But you have to apply. IntelliJ IDEA Community is indeed just download and go, but it is fundamentally JDK Maven/Gradle oriented. OK so Gradle has a C++ build capability, but it doesn't have a SCons, CMake or Dub one really. My background here is that I think all builds should be driven by a text file. Whilst Eclipse and IntelliJ IDEA used to demand manually constructed projects, this approach is now history. All the IDEs now focus on generating projects from external build descriptions. For all my projects I use a Gradle, CMake, or SCons file and then generate projects as needed. I am told there are some differences between plugins for CLion and IntelliJ IDEA but not too different so a single code base should suffice. -- Russel. ============================================================================= Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.win...@ekiga.net 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: rus...@winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder
