How to import non-KDevelop project

Fri Apr 20, 2012 5:52 pm
I have several directories that contain C++ code that I would like to import into KDevelop. The legacy directory structure has separate Makefile directories and require intimate knowledge of GMake. I tried importing by using one of the Makefiles and it didn't go anywhere.

Is there just a way to import a directory of C++ and have KDevelop make a project for me?

BTW, I'm using KDevelop 4.

Hello there,

you can open any directory as a project in kdevelop, just do so (Project -> Open/Import -> select your directory). If you already have a makefile, you can also select that makefile to make kdevelop guess your project configuration (include directories, for example) from that makefile.

In no case will kdevelop offer a way to build an already existing project which does not provide a build system itself, in case you're looking for that. It just doesn't do that.

Greetings,
Sven


I'm working on the KDevelop IDE.

Sven,
Thanks for the response. I'll give that a try and see how it works.
