  • Using CLion with php-src | 2021-05-10
    I’ve cloned and built php-src numerous times over the years, on a variety of platforms, but I’ve never worked with it in an IDE. A long-time Vim user, I’ve only begun using PhpStorm over the last year and a half, after seeing how IntelliJ helped me easily navigate an open source Java project. So, in setting up php-src for release management tasks, I wanted to give CLion a try.
