Developing on Windows? CLion Windows Toolchains to the Rescue!
We recently released CLion 2021.3. As part of this update, we made it easier to configure Windows toolchains in CLion while making them more powerful at the same time.

Setting up the Clang Compiler in CLion on Windows
Update: MSYS2 now provides the majority of packages built with clang. They use libc++ and lld by default, and you can get the complete toolchain by getting packages from this page. Be aware that when using libraries built with clang it's better not to mix them with libraries built with other toolchains. You can find the list of all libraries here. As a make executable for CLion, you can use clang64/bin/mingw32-make.exe. Don't forget that with default build flags you will need to have libc++.dll and libunwind.dll in your build directory. Otherwise, this approach might be even easier to use than

CLion and Linux toolchain on Windows are now friends!
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
