Hi Atul.

CLion uses CMake as a build tool and a project model. So you need to configure CMakeLists.txt for SDL2 library using.
Please try to use some examples of CmakeLists from these articles:

I am fairly new to CLion and this is also my first time with a full-fledged IDE, so I have very little experience. I am currently learning SDL2 and therefore need to set it up. I have absolutely no clue where to start from. I have downloaded the .dll of SDL2. Where do I place it? How do I edit the CMakeList? Please help.

EDIT - Turns out, even my download was wrong. I have CLion with latest mingw but I do not know which of these to download SDL2-devel-2.0.3-VC.zip (Visual C++ 32/64-bit)
SDL2-devel-2.0.3-mingw.tar.gz (MinGW 32/64-bit) since Clion also uses CMake (like visual c++). Please help.

Hi Atul.

You need to download the second distributive.
Also please use FindSDL2.cmake from the link. Find out more information in the readme file.
