Re: [cdt-dev] [EXTERNAL] Re: Proposal for cdt resources decoration.

Hello All, 
Let me start from the beginning and explain again in detail in order to align all of us.

The current CDT resources model for managed-build project based on sources definition by each build configuration, sources are used by indexer function and build procedure.
Attached picture (right part) describes this behavior.

At same time users might have a lot of build configurations with different sources by each configuration and the project will look a little bit complex and unclear.
My proposal to decorate differently resources that are not related to active build configuration. These resources will not be specified as a source.

The next point is temp build directory in my concept it has the same name as build configuration, because CDT does not have some place for definition for it.
The second proposal is  to decorate differently eponymous folders  with build configuration which contains build artifacts ( .o, .bin, makefile etc).

Best regard,
Sergei Kovalchuk, NXP

Hello Liviu,

We are talking about the same things (non-used resource for build configuration), 
The resource that not specified as sources for build configuration is evaluated as excluded and non-used by the active builder.

I'm a bit confused, initially you were talking about decorating inactive build folders, which was ok, especially for projects with many configurations, now you are talking about decorating all non-source resources? Is this necessary?

Since resources that are used in the build are already decorated with a small C in the top right corner, isn't that enough?
