With the power of gray skull, CMake support in Vim is born. This allows for CMake commands for building, installing, cleaning and invoking custom targets within Vim. It makes uses of vimux if found and can provide integrations for Syntastic and YouCompleteMe.
If lost, run
:help cmake for a bit of guidance.
At the time of writing,
cmake.vim has been tested with Vim 7.3+ in nocp mode
and CMake 2.8.
I recommending using Vundle to install plugins. The line necessary to add this plugin is as follows:
After you installed the plugin, just
cd into the directory where the
top-level CMakeLists.txt can be found and run:
" Create a new binary directory for your clean project. :CMakeCreateProject <build-dir-name> " Build all of the targets. :CMakeBuild
With that, you created (or re-configured in a vanilla-setup) a new binary directory and built the project.
cmake.vim defines a few methods for generic interaction with CMake. Check
:help cmake-methods for more information.
In order for CMake to operate, it has to know where the build directory is
located. This is done automatically by the plugin but it does need help in the
event that you happen to build your CMake project in a sub-directory. Check
:help cmake-options for more information.
:help cmake-integrations for tips on integrations
other plug-ins like Syntastic or YouCompleteMe. Long story short, it's
freaking awesome but could use some work. With this version, the integrations are now
target-specific, allowing for fine-grained integration for every single
With the more recent changes to YouCompleteMe; it's become a bit difficult to dynamically add per-file flags. See
:h cmake-integrations-ycm-setupon how to configure YouCompleteMe with CMake.
Getting and setting variables is still rough around the edges.
:CMakeBuildTarget that'd build the target provided. If a file is
to be provided, find the target for that file and build the target it
belongs to (restricted to source files).
:CMakeCleanTarget since we can determine pre-target cleaning
Improve integration's use flag lookup and discovery on a per-target basis
and a per-file basis (restricted to source files).

The test suite is written using RSpec and Vimrunner. The following would do a full unit test of the entire system:
bundle install rake

I'm Jacky Alcine and I like code. A lot. I also chat a lot like a firehose so follow with caution!
