It was first time when new version of QtCreator disappointed me.
I’m talking about QtCreator 4, and its new feature turned on by default –
ClangCodeModel. I have 16 Gb RAM, not worst processor i5-3320M and all code I’m working on is located on SSD. Use Ubuntu 16.04×64 with XFCE, Qt 5.6 and gcc. Seems like perfect environment. Unfortunately,
ClangCodeModel requires me to wait on each code-completion pop-up window. It drives me crazy!
All the time I code QtCreator seemed most speedy environment for C++/Qt with comprehensive debug tools and lots of pleasure stuff in it.
To show how it is slow I’ve recorded a video:
ClangCodeModel is switchable – anyone could switch it off. But I can’t understand why does developers of QtCreaor introduced such things enabled by default.
Another questionable moment is that each time I want turn off
ClangCodeModel – I need go to
About plugins..., turn it off and restart creator. To compare with QtCreator 3.6 – there was checkbox in
C++ Tab ->
Code model Tab where I could turn off Clang Code model Warnings.
If anyone could shed a light on what am I doing wrong – please do it. Otherwise, it makes me sad…
