The Build plugin adds a Build Output tool view at the bottom and a menu on the menubar. The tool view can be used to configure build target settings, while the menu can be used to perform build, clean and compile actions.
The Build Output tool view has two tabs:
The target settings tab can be used to configure various build targets and define targets sets.
To change the names or commands double click on the entries in the table and use the dropdown box to select the active target set. Use the checkbox in front of each target to define a default.
A new target set contains several configuration options:
- Working Directory
You can set the path to the project here. Leave this empty to use the directory the current document is located in.
This option lets you define the build command. It is set to make by default.
The option lets you define the clean command. It is set to make clean by default.
This option lets you define the config command. It is set to cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local ../ by default.
On the top this plugin has a toolbar with the following buttons :
|Build the selected target|
|Add a new build target|
|Create a new build target set|
|Copy a command or target set|
|Delete the current command or target set|
The Output tab shows the console output generated by the last command.
Use the slider at the top to show or hide categories of output:

Each line contains a message and the file name and line number if available. Clicking on the error or warning takes you to the appropriate file and places the cursor on the corresponding line number.
