Or you just symlink the compile_commands to your src dir, you will need
that anyways to have other command line tooling work out of the box
like clang-format and Co.

That is one reason we propose to use kdesrc-build for beginners,
as described on

as with the proposed options there it will link all stuff
in a way that if you open the projects in Kate clangd and
Co. will just work out of the box.
