When you want to build and run single c/cpp file in CLion, CMakeLists.txt needs to be configured to declare add_executable(). It is troublesome when you want to run many of the files independently within the same project.
This plugin supports to insert add_executable() statement into CMakeLists.txt, so that you can easily build and run a single file. Also, you can specify a location of directory for build executable file for each target.
