[cdt-dev] CMake support in Eclipse CDT

Hi everyone,

This email is in reference to the Build Model Enhancements discussion

Is the goal of this discussion to actually implement all of the builders for 
the other build systems (CMake, qmake, etc) or are you just improving the 
build infrastructure in general in order to make such builders possible in the future?

I am asking this because I just started with my Master term project at the University 
of Applied Sciences in Rapperswil and the goal of the project is to write a plug-in that 
adds support for CMake to Eclipse CDT. It would be somewhat similar to the SConsolidator
plug-in ( but for CMake instead of SCons. Therefore, it would allow
the import of existing CMake-based projects into Eclipse CDT as well as the creation of a new 
CMake-Project, etc.

Anyway, after reading this discussion I am wondering if it makes sense for me to continue with this 
project or whether there is too much overlap. Or maybe, there is an opportunity for us to collaborate?

Thanks and best regards,
