      C++ on Macs

      So someone just dropped off their Macbook to me and they want an IDE for C++. They're looking for something like VS but they don't have an Apple ID for some reason or another (or don't want to share it or something, it's really weird). So I need beginner-friendly IDE suggestions for C++ (something that doesn't require Xcode I guess). I've never used Macs in my life (and trying to do stuff on it was frustrating to say the least), so a comprehensive answer/guide would be appreciated.

      You don't need XCode, but iirc you do need xcode tools which can be downloaded without downloading xcode itself for developing various apps. As for the IDE you can Use CLion by Jetbrains.

      I think if someone is used to visual studio there would be definitely a learning curve . XCode or CLion as mentioned in previos post you could make them to work. If he/she is beginner for sake of learning using Visual studio code or Sublime editor would be a lot better but obviously you would have to make configuration .
      XCode is most reliable and suitable option if you have to stick to MAC i think safe option is learn it .

      I would recommend vscode but it just doesn't seem feasible for a beginner to do configuration needed specially on a mac.

      Yep they wouldn't know how to work on vscode or sublime. I've suggested xcode tools + clion to them. Thanks for your help.
