Configuring SDL2 with Clion Follow
I'm new to CLion, i had some expierience with VisualC++, but mostly programmed in Java and Kotlin using IntelliJ. I'm trying to configure SDL2 with CLion and can't find any working solution. Currently i have recommended MinGW from Win-Builds installed (including SDL2), Find_SDL2.cmake file is in my cmake modules and here's my CMakeLists.txt:
Currently i'm getting an error:
c:/mingw/bin/../lib64/gcc/x86_64-w64-mingw32/4.8.3/../../../../x86_64-w64-mingw32/lib/../lib/libmingw32.a(lib64_libmingw32_a-crt0_c.o):crt0_c.c:(.text.startup+0x25): undefined reference to `WinMain'
I'm open to do everything from scratch, just want to get all of this to work.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Have you tried doing everything exactly as described here?
Yes i did, and that's where i'm currently at with it.
Have you downloaded SDL2 from https://www.libsdl.org/download-2.0.php? Why is your SDL2_PATH "C:\\dev\\SDL2" and not "C:\\dev\\SDL2-2.0.10\\i86_64-w64-mingw32", for example?
Do you have the message that SDL is found in the CMake tool window (View | Tool Windows | CMake)?
Yes, i downloaded it from there, just changed the folder name for clarity.
I had the message a while ago, but now it's:
"D:\Tools\CLion\CLion 2019.2.5\bin\cmake\win\bin\cmake.exe" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -G "CodeBlocks - MinGW Makefiles" C:\Users\JJBla\CLionProjects\test
-- Configuring done
-- Generating done
-- Build files have been written to: C:/Users/JJBla/CLionProjects/test/cmake-build-debug-mingw
I don't know why it's not there anymore.
Do you use i686-w64-mingw32 or x86_64-w64-mingw32 SDL2 distribution?
I use x86_64-w64-mingw32. I started from scratch with a new project and now it actually says "Found SDL2: mingw32;-mwindows;C:/dev/SDL2/lib/libSDL2main.a;C:/dev/SDL2/lib/libSDL2.dll.a". But it still dosen't work with the same errors appearring.
The thing is the issue most probably is not CLion-related. I assume if you try to build your CMake project in the Command Prompt, you'll get the same error. Is it so?
I would advice to try using i686-w64-mingw32 (just in case). And maybe ask on some SDL or CMake forums, or Stack Overflow.
Ok, thank for you your help. I haven't tried to complie cmake project but i compiled my program from command line just using g++ and it actually worked.
Please let me know if you find out that the CMake project can be built successfully outside CLion.
After some tries I finnaly got it working by removing both sdl2 and minGW and using the ones from msys2.
