I have started studying OpenCV source code. I was just wondering can opencv be setup in an IDE for Development ? It helps in finding related classes and functions, somewhat easier. (I am using QtCreator but any IDE would ease the understanding of code)

What works best for me is the following approach

  1. Search the online documentation for the function that interests me and define the module and location where it is found, which is quite straightforward. A search on the github project page can also help out there.
  2. Go to the source code folder of that module and open the file in any IDE you want, for code highlighting purposes.

What else would you want to do? If you want to be able to debug into the source code, you need to build openCV yourself on your system so that the pdb files are available.
