Clang-Tidy integration: disable individual checks and other improvements

CLion 2017.2 brought Clang-Tidy integration, that expands the list of CLion’s checks and helps you ensure better code quality. We’ve received a lot of useful feedback and today are happy to address several important issues:

  • Now you can use your own Clang-Tidy instead of one bundled into CLion. To do so provide a path to the Clang-Tidy binary in Settings/Preferences | Languages & Frameworks | C/C++:
    The main benefit of this change is that you can now checkout the LLVM master repository, add your own checks to the Clang-Tidy and get them instantly in CLion!

    Please, be sure you are using Clang-Tidy version 6.0.0 and more (or any other version, but with this and this patches applied).

  • You can now disable individual Clang-Tidy checks from the CLion context menu:

    This will update the list of enabled/disable checks in Settings/Preferences | Editor | Inspections | C/C++ | General | Clang-Tidy:

    In this context menu you can also find an option to suppress Clang-Tidy check for a particular line via // NOLINT.

  • Default configuration of enabled/disabled checks was slightly updated.

That’s it! Full release notes are available by the link.
