How can I change the visual studio 2015 compiler to cygwin

Is it possible to change the visual studio 2015 compiler to Cygwin the ide is nice I would just like a different compiler.

Answer

Not directly, but you can use CMake to generate both Cygwin and Visual Studio projects. Write code in Visual Studio, build the Cygwin build via CMake. Only downside: updates to the Visual Studio .vcxproj file aren't sync'ed back to the CMakelist.txt file.
