C-mantic provides code generation and refactorings for C/C++. Relevant code-actions are suggested via the light-bulb menu 💡, and can be accessed directly by selecting
Source Actions... in the editor context menu. Code-actions are also available from the command palette or by keyboard shortcut.

Features at a glance
Requires a C/C++ language server extension (IntelliSense) for full functionality, such as Microsoft's C/C++ extension. See Language Server below for more details.
Issues and Feedback
If you find a bug or would like to request a new feature, please open an Issue on Github. Also, consider leaving the extension a rating.
Update Function Signature
Generate Getters and Setters
C-mantic is designed to work with any C/C++ language server, and is primarily tested with C/C++ (
ms-vscode.cpptools) and clangd (
llvm-vs-code-extensions.vscode-clangd), but will also work on ccls (
ccls-project.ccls). If you use a different language server, C-mantic may still work, but is untested. If you find a bug that you suspect might be related to your language server, please open an Issue and state what language server you are using.
If you find that features of C-mantic aren't working, first make sure that your language server (IntelliSense) is working correctly. To do this, check out the Outline View, usually found in the
Explorer side-bar. The Outline View should show all source code symbols for the current file. Also, make sure
Go to Definition and
Go to Declaration are working. If C-mantic still isn't working correctly, open an Issue on GitHub and describe the problem along with any relevant information.
- C-mantic relies on the language server to provide information about your source code in order to function correctly. Because of this, if the language server running slowly, C-mantic may fail to provide code-actions right away. For instance, if you type out a function declaration, C-mantic won't be able to provide the
Add Definition code-actions until the language server updates. To mitigate this, you can change how often the language server updates in response to code changes:
C/C++ (ms-vscode.cpptools), you can lower the
C_Cpp: Intelli Sense Update Delay setting (default 2000ms).
ccls (ccls-project.ccls), you can lower the
Status Update Interval setting (default 2000ms).
The list of planned features can be found here. Requests for new features/functionalities are welcome, just open an Issue on Github. If you'd like to contribute, feel free to open a pull-request.
