In this post we’ll discuss how to work with WSL in CLion and how Windows users can benefit from this support. Why do I need it? CLion is a cross-platform IDE, that means you can run it on Windows, Linux, and macOS. From the very beginning it works with GCC and Clang compilers, which means on Windows it requires Cygwin or MinGW (or MinGW-w64). Later we introduced Microsoft Visual C++ compiler support, for those users who have it installed and want to use inside CLion on Windows. Besides, we know that there are C++ developers who have Windows desktops but require Linux toolchain for buildin
CLion and Linux toolchain on Windows are now friends!
