Using rider as general C++ development IDE

I like how rider handles C++ code in unreal and it looks that it works with C++ much better than CLion in terms of refactoring, inspections, and quick fixes. Currently, I use CLion at work and use Unreal Engine development in my spare time as a hobby. I also use Unity sometimes and earlier, when I was a Unity developer I used Rider license for a long time. I would really appreciate if you made Rider be able to handle general C++ CMake/makefile projects as CLion currently does but with Rider's features

Hello IC,


We have no immediate plans to support general C++ projects in Rider. We are currently working specifically on the Unreal support in Rider, and it is not likely to change in the near future.


CLion does support general C++ projects, and we would appreciate it if you could create a feature request on the tracker and let us know what features you would like to see implemented in CLion.
