I can't speak for all libraries, but Boost.Beast has strong support
for Visual Studio, as it is the environment which I do all of my
development on. The CMakeLists.txt in beast is hand-crafted to give
the best possible solution and project files, where sources are
grouped logically into folders. The entire include/boost/beast
directory is mapped into a folder in each project so you can browse
and search conveniently. For example:


The tests are also designed to output to the Visual Studio Output
window if ::IsDebuggerAttached() returns TRUE, for additional
convenience. And finally the tests enable the CRT Debug Heap tracking
to provide leak reports on exit.

Hope this helps!
