Setting up LLVM
After installing Clang Power Tools the most important step is to set up the LLVM version you want to use to Compile, Format, and Tidy your code.
Fortunately, the entire configuration process is streamlined thanks to our built-in LLVM version manager which allows you to download and install multiple versions side-by-side.

Using the LLVM version manager
To access the LLVM version manager is quite easy.

After pressing Download the process begins to download and install the selected LLVM.
Managing LLVM versions
Now that you have multiple versions of LLVM installed all you have to do is select from the Use LLVM drop-down which version you want Clang Power Tools to use.
💡 Versions can be uninstalled at any time by pressing the Uninstall button.
You are now ready to use Clang Power Tools as well as to begin experimenting with different LLVM versions.
