Compiling with biicode: CMake, build process, IDEs and more

biicode knows how source code files connect to each other. With this information, it creates a boilerplate CMake layout to build your project automatically. biicode then detects how sources connect and builds a dependency graph following #includes and implementations generating, for each block, a CMakeLists.txt defining variables to the dependency graph detected.

This translates into a CMakeLists.txt file with just one line by default:

Today, we explain the different options available in biicode once you’ve got your CMakeLists.txt ready.
