Importing projects

In the IDE, you can import projects and import and build your existing source code into Makefile projects.

The Import wizard lets you bring files or folders into an existing project from different sources, including:

You can also drag and drop items from the filesystem or link files and folders into a project. For more information, see:

Resolving problem markers

After you import a project, there may be problem markers throughout it, because the indexer needs a successful build to populate the index. To resolve the problem markers, you must do a build.

If you're importing code that uses an existing build system, you may need to provide a Makefile with all and clean targets that call your existing build system.

For example, if you're using the jam tool to build your application, your IDE project Makefile might look like this:

jam -fbuild.jam 
jam -fbuild.jam clean
