Whoops, sorry, it was in llvm-dev.

Here's the last message in the thread: http://lists.llvm.org/pipermail/llvm-dev/2016-January/094608.html

Hi Alexander,

Can you be more specific? I'm afraid I can't find the discussion.


Thanks!


Mike

I've been away for a week (and will be for ~one more), but I've long wanted to write a patch for CMake so that it'd link to the natvis that's part of LLVM's repo. I think you can find the discussion in the January cfe-dev archives, and if you're up to it, go right ahead!

My local install of git is all screwed up, and since CMake uses git, I haven't gotten around to it.

Not unlike gdb visualizers, Visual Studio visualizers require some setup: You have to put clang.natvis and llvm.natvis in Documents\Visual Studio 20xx\Visualizers. However, VS2015 added support for visualizers in a project. Once we stop supporting VS2013, we will be able to automagically eliminate the manual setup. Is there a timeline for dropping VS2013 support?
