Official Mirror
Bear records the flags passed to the compiler for each translation unit and
stores them in a JSON file. This file can be used by Clang's tooling interface
and programs like clang-check to process a translation unit.
cmake supports the generation of JSON compilation databases out of the box.
For any other build system that does not support this, Bear can be used
instead to intercept the invocation of the compiler.
