Qt Creator Gets Excited For CMake Server-Mode

With last week's CMake 3.7 release one of the less-advertised features is the build system's server-mode functionality, which is sure to excited integrated development environments (IDEs).

CMake 3.7's server-mode enables machine-readable output with information about the capabilities of the CMake binary, including details on settings and project infoirmation. This information is more accurate and reliable than previous CMake integration techniques with IDEs. More powerful features for the CMake server-mode are already planned to offer tighter integration with different development environments.

One of the IDEs real excited about the CMake server-mode -- and they've had a hand with its development -- is Qt Creator. Qt Creator support for CMake server-mode will officially ship in the spring with v4.3 or can be obtained via Git right now. More details on the integration with CMake's server-mode via this Qt Company blog post.
