CLion not-catkin packages

I am using CLION for development of ROS C++ files. In my project some files are not catkin compatible but standalone CPP packages. When loading the top level CMakeLists into CLion, I receive an error, because it apparently evokes catkin_make

CMake Error at /opt/ros/kinetic/share/catkin/cmake/catkin_workspace.cmake:95 (message):
  This workspace contains non-catkin packages in it, and catkin cannot build
  a non-homogeneous workspace without isolation.  Try the
  'catkin_make_isolated' command instead.

How can I configure CLion to be able to load my entire workspace with catkin_make_isolated or catkin build

  1. Install ROS-Robot Operating System plugin on CLion:

    you have to open the Settings (from the File menu); then from the left panel select plugin in order to show the plugin panel in the right side and select the marketplace tab; then search for ROS-Robot Operating System plugin and install it.

  2. Import your ros_workspace by the installed plugin in File menu:

    In order to import an existing workspace, you have to use the menu Import ROS workspace, selecting the workspace folder. In this case, the plugin will search from the configured ROS versions and it will setup the project in order to resolve the ROS dependency.

Doesnt help... you still get the same error message. We need a way to handle building non catkin packages in clion
