Sorry, I didn’t mean that we should aim for normal users to do that because, really, it’s way too much manual configuration. I fully support the idea to make this simpler for users and I really appreciate that you are looking into this.

That’s a bit what I was getting at when replying to Liviu, i.e. his feedback/contributions are needed for better macOS support.
I only occasionally use CMake to test the compilation database parser in the language settings provider, but that is not Core build. I do not use cmake for any real projects.
I don’t mind helping to test it and provide some feedback but it would probably be more efficient and reliable from someone who needs it for something real in the day to day. Do not hesitate to contact me for questions or more targeted tests on macOS.
