What is Rider

JetBrains Rider is a new cross-platform .NET IDE based on the IntelliJ platform and ReSharper.

Supports most .NET project types

Rider supports .NET Framework, the new cross-platform .NET Core, and Mono based projects. This lets you develop a wide array of applications including .NET desktop applications, services and libraries, Unity games, Xamarin apps, ASP.NET and ASP.NET Core web applications.

Feature-rich and fast

Rider provides 2500+ live code inspections, hundreds of context actions and refactorings brought by ReSharper, and combines them with the IntelliJ platform's solid IDE features. Despite a heavy feature set, Rider is designed to be fast and responsive.

Cross-platform

As well as running and debugging multiple runtimes, Rider itself runs on multiple platforms: Windows, macOS and Linux.

Behind
the scenes

IntelliJ and ReSharper join forces

On the backend, 2500+ ReSharper's powerful code inspections run continuously in the background, without affecting text editor performance.

Meanwhile, a fast and efficient protocol transfers the necessary bits between the backend and the frontend, and guarantees data consistency.

On the frontend, the IntelliJ platform's time-tested, rich code editor works without the burden of code analysis, resulting in a responsive editing experience.

Features

Code editing

Rider's rich editor features different kinds of code completion and code templates, auto-inserting matching braces and import directives, quick info tooltips and gutter icons for inheritance navigation, context actions, and much more.

Code analysis

Rider boasts 2500+ live code inspections, with automated quick-fixes to resolve detected issues individually or in bulk. Solution-wide error analysis will monitor code issues and let you know if anything goes wrong, even in files that are not currently open.

Navigation and search

You can jump to any file, type, or member in your code base in no time, as well as find settings and actions. Find usages of any symbol, or navigate from a symbol to base and derived symbols, extension methods or implementations.

Refactorings

Most of ReSharper's 50+ refactorings are already available in Rider, and its 450+ context actions are all there. Rename, extract methods, interfaces and classes, move and copy types, use alternative syntax, and a lot more!

Unit test runner

Rider helps you run and debug unit tests based on NUnit and xUnit.net. You can explore tests, group them in different ways, break them down into individual sessions, see test output and navigate to source code from stack traces.

Debugger and more tools

Rider includes a debugger that works with .NET Framework, Mono and .NET Core applications, letting you step, watch, evaluate and run to cursor. Other tools include a stack trace explorer, NuGet browser, VCS and database support.
