The last time I worked on a C++ program in the Flatpak of Intellij, the IDE suggested that I use CLion instead. I guess they want me to buy a license. I'm just a student programmer, so I'm not excited about that. I'd love to be able to work on other languages that aren't Java-based without running a whole different IDE.

I feel like I'm being pushed into the arms of Visual Studio Code.


If you are a student, chances are you can get a free CLion just by giving your university email.
They even give a nice graduation gift in the form of a rebate.
They are based in Russia (and have vocally expressed their disagreement with current affairs).
