CLion community version?

I wonder why there's no free version of CLion?

I don't use C/C++ most of the time. But I still want a great IDE like CLion. Especially if you don't work on C/C++ environment, having an IDE can be really helpful.

I currently have an IntelliJ license, but the C/C++ plugin is nothing like CLion. It would be awesome if JetBrain provide a plugin and make IntelliJ IDE works like CLion. If not, a free version of CLion would be nice.

Hi Xi.

We have such plans and we are going to provide CLion functionality as a plugin to IntelliJ IDEA in the future, but not in the nearest future.
There are some difficult points for the integration CLion as a plugin to IntelliJ IDEA and we need to fully analyse what we can do to solve them.
We appreciate your patience!

By the way, we provide free CLion licenses for students, classrooms and open source projects. Also for startups there is a 50% discount.
Please find out more information on our website.
