xcode how to - CMake, Xcode and Unix Makefile
I found the answer by myself (I mean asking the good person) :
Use 2 separate build directories for each type of build files. This will ensure each build directory has the correct build files and generated files for its use.
In the add_executable() command, in addition to the source files also include the headers and generated headers for those to show up in Xcode.
I was using classic Unix Makefile generator until I found a webpage explaining CMake could produce a nice xcode project file using "cmake -G Xcode" so I ran that command in my source directory and I get a nice xcode project. This is great but I'm facing some drawback and was wondering if there are solutions to these :
now I can't build out of tree using unix makefiles (I use to run cmake ../myproj in a build dir and then make command) this doesn't work anymore (I suppose temp files in the project dir are responsible)
some of my headers are generated by cmake (myproj.h.in became myproj.h and is include in some tests for example) but I can't find those files in the xcode project I get.
Thanks in advance for any good advice on how I can combine xcode project and unix makefile to be able to use both.
