Compile locally and run on raspberry pi via Clion

Background

Compiling C/C++ code on the raspberry pi is very slow, I have some code I am writing that compiles in less than 5 seconds on the laptop but can take 30 minutes on the raspberry pi. This is pretty annoying and slows down testing of code tweaks.

I have found a way of automating this quite successfully via Clion (Commerical software from Jetbrains).
