Super basic MoveIt! package

I am following the MoveIt! tutorials and I would like to start playing around with the code and the libraries that are used in some .cpp files.

For that, I would like to create my own workspace and package (which I've already done) and try to build this specific tutorial. The problem is, I am a newbie in C++ and I am not sure how to properly modify the CMakeLists.txt in order to catkin_make my workspace and somehow tell CMake where all of the moveit the includes are. I guess I should reference the files in /opt/ros/melodic/include?

I think this should be the most simple way to start running my - very simple - own code. I know I can just modify the tutorials' package, but I would like to know how to do it otherwise. I've try to read the ROS documentation on CMakeLists.txt, but it's just too difficult for me to find out on my own.

I am using ROS Melodic on Ubuntu 18.04.

This post doesn't ask a question. It seems like you want to ask something like "how can I create my own C++ node?", in which case there are the tutorials. Have you tried following those?
