CMake Support in Visual Studio – Import Your CMake Cache

Vahe Minasyan

Configuring a CMake project to build in just the way you want can often be a time intensive process, so in Visual Studio 2017 15.5 preview we have made it easier than ever to import your existing CMake projects and cache configurations into the IDE.  You can now import an existing CMakeCache.txt file and Visual Studio will automatically extract customized variables and create a pre-populated CMakeSettings.json file based on them.
