First, download and install rtags. This unfortunately takes a really long time:
$ brew install rtags
Then, use it to index your project: for CMake-based projects,
$ git clone https://github.com/taglib/taglib # replace with your project $ mkdir taglib-build $ cd taglib-build $ cmake -GNinja ../taglib $ rdm # in another terminal $ ninja -t commands | rc -c -
atomic-rtags through Atom, and check the configuration options.
Open your .cpp file, and hit alt+, with the cursor
positioned at the symbol you want to look up.
Not indexed: Index your project by piping the build commands to
rc -c -.
(Jumps to incorrect location): Open an issue.
Not found or Indexing in progress: Inspect the output of
<filename>:<line>:<column> (after starting
rdm). Some symbols are genuinely
not indexed by rtags though.
Can't seem to connect to server: Start
rdm, or enable
under configuration options.
Other error: Open an issue.
YouCompleteMe is a popular choice for the task; however, rtags beats ycm in practice: ycm is slow, confusing, hard to configure, and complains about not being able to look up definitions often.
Good catch. Let us know what about this package looks wrong to you, and we'll investigate right away.
