CLion Getting Started Guide?

This was asked before, but without any answer.

Has anything changed? Is there a CLion getting started for beginners guide?

PC development setup with CLion? - Playdate Developer Forum

The Inside Playdate with C docs outline the steps to set up building with CLion; are you looking for more than that?

I was looking for a baby steps from scratch to a simple Hello World game (i.e. just something printing Hello World to the screen/dev. console).

There is a hello world C game in the PlaydateSDK/C_API/Examples/Hello World folder with pre-configured Make and CMake files. Once you've opened that folder in CLion, you can configure CLion using the steps listed in the Inside Playdate doc which should get you up and running fairly quickly.
