CLion vs ReSharper: What are the differences?

What is CLion? A cross-platform IDE for C and C++. Knowing your code through and through, CLion can take care of the routine while you focus on the important things. Boost your productivity with the keyboard-centric approach (Vim-emulation plugin is also available in plugin repository), full coding assistance, smart and relevant code completion, fast project navigation, intelligent intention actions, and reliable refactorings.

What is ReSharper? A Visual Studio extension for .NET and web developers. It is a popular developer productivity extension for Microsoft Visual Studio.
