Has anybody tried using CLion to build Cinder?


Hi guys.

Anybody tried using CLion to build Cinder?



hey man this should work out of the box on osx and linux for cinder and projects. I don’t know if anyone has had luck on windows although I did notice that you can now build cinder using cmake on windows when sussing out this exciting pull request for gstreamer video playback on win:


Android NDK on windows has come on a lot bit it’s still a bit of a PITA. Might be worth revisiting though - the IDE has moved on loads.


I use CLion to build Cinder on macOS. It’s really easy, here’s my CMakeLists.txt:

No other configuration was needed for me, all completion and intellisense works perfectly

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 3.10)


get_filename_component( CINDER_PATH "~/cinder_master" ABSOLUTE )

include( "${CINDER_PATH}/proj/cmake/modules/cinderMakeApp.cmake" )

        APP_NAME "CinderExample"
        SOURCES main.cpp
