what annoys you most while using c++?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/cpp

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • Zigi - Close all those tabs. Zigi will handle your updates.
  • Scout APM - Truly a developer’s best friend
  • Sonar - Write Clean C++ Code. Always.
  • soloud

    Free, easy, portable audio engine for games

    No, that has indeed solved it for me. But the first time I encountered it, my friend and I spent quite awhile debugging the problem. Almost 2 hours, I believe. We still have an open issue about that one.

  • rr

    Record and Replay Framework

    - Long building times and in general lack of good interpreter for fast debugging/development (there is cling but still it's not well known and not well integrated). If you developed a big project you know that you may wait for 40 minutes after you changed one symbol in a bad header file. My dream would be to have an ability to change code on the fly (it worked or even works sometimes in Visual studio) and to be able to reverse debugging as https://rr-project.org/ allows and to do this easily.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Data Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services in less time with less code.

  • scnlib

    scanf for modern C++

    I've found https://github.com/eliaskosunen/scnlib but haven't tested it. Maybe that suits your needs for 2.

  • range-v3

    Range library for C++14/17/20, basis for C++20's std::ranges

    It contains very little functionality compared to the Eric Niebler’s reference implementation for my liking. Especially views. This will undoubtedly change in the future. But the point is moot, because they are not really supported the is no other option for now other than https://github.com/ericniebler/range-v3.

  • Magic Enum C++

    Static reflection for enums (to string, from string, iteration) for modern C++, work with any enum type without any macro or boilerplate code


  • Zigi

    Close all those tabs. Zigi will handle your updates.. Zigi monitors Jira and GitHub updates, pings you when PRs need approval and lets you take fast actions - all directly from Slack! Plus it reduces cycle time by up to 75%.
