I switched to emacs as my C++ ide. I am using irony mode, company, rtags, and since all of my projects are using cmake, cmake-ide. I cant realy find something online on how the workflow works with cmake-ide? How can I compile targets and run the resulting binarys using cmake-ide? Currently I am doing this in terminal mode inside emacs, but I hope I can do this using cmake-ide.


Assuming you have installed rtags on your machine and set this:

(require 'rtags) 

then you would just do:

M-x cmake-ide-compile

That would do the rest for you.

for running the program refer to this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/9593880/compile-and-run-a-c-program-in-emacs

or you can change your CMakeList.txt to run some tests.
