Importing the project¶
CLion requires a
CMakeLists.txt file as a project file, which is problematic
for Godot because it uses the SCons buildsystem instead of CMake. However,
there is a
CMakeLists.txt configuration for Android Studio
which can also be used by CLion.
- From the CLion’s welcome window choose the option to import an existing project. If you’ve already opened another project, choose File > Open from the top menu.
- Navigate to
<Godot root directory>/platform/android/java/lib(the
CMakeLists.txtfile is located there) and select it (but not the
CMakeLists.txtfile itself), then click OK.
- If this popup window appears, select This Window to open the project:
- Choose Tools > CMake > Change Project Root from the top menu and select the Godot root folder.
- You should be now be able to see all the project files. Autocomplete should work once the project has finished indexing.
If you run into any issues, ask for help in one of Godot’s community channels.
