I'm a Java developer so I am a bit new to prepare IDE for C+ project. What are the main steps for preparing development environment for Nodeos?

I downloaded full source code from github/eos/eosio and successful built on my Mac.

  • Maybe have a look at this eosio.stackexchange.com/questions/616/…

  • Oh, my question is quite clear, it's what main steps could be done. That link you provide is about the possibility not describe main steps. Commented Jun 5, 2018 at 9:25

  • Have a look at this tutorial from Kevin Heifner: youtube.com/watch?v=E3Tx2DseLGE, he talks about setting up your dev environment and CLion in the first 15 minutes of the tutorial.

The official docs added an article on configuring IDEs with a section on Eclipse C++ IDE.


In the contracts folder, in the local EOS repository, create a shortcut / symbolic link of the eosiolib folder and place it in the eclipse-workspace folder. This is done to give smart contracts access to needed header files.
