This patch adds support for out-of-source project files to the projects plugin.
Review Request #109122 - Created Feb. 23, 2013 and submitted
This patch adds support for out-of-source project files. If a "directory" entry is present at the top level, this directory is used as the base directory for the project. If this patch is accepted, I'll add a project generator for kate to cmake, so that then I can checkout any cmake-based project, run cmake on it, and automatically have a project file created for it. It will contain the git/svn entries and correct targets to build, including -j flags. It will create the .kateproject file in the build dir, pointing to the source dir, and maybe a file called <ProjectName>.kateproject, which then needs to be opened in kate as "loading the project".
Works for me.
Hi, I am ok with that ;) A CMake generator would be awesome ;) At you must then open the project manually, or? as Kate can't detect it as the sources are located elsewhere? Guess some "open project" dialog would be good idea then in the projects menus ;)
