minimum working example for CMakePresets.json

i am struggling to get CMakePresets.json to work.

consider the following CMakePresets.json:

{
  "version": 2,
}

the version field is required. When i ran with cmake -S . --preset=default i received:

CMake Error: Could not read presets from /home/user/test: JSON parse error

my cmake version is 3.20.2

JSON does not allow for trailing commas

thank you, that was the problem.

i was overlooking the inherits requirements, too. Below is working:

{
  "version": 2,
  "configurePresets": [
    {
      "name": "default",
      "generator": "Ninja",
      "binaryDir": "${sourceDir}/build/default"
    }
  ]
}
