JetBrains Rider 2018.1 Help

Working with JetBrains Rider Features from Command Line

Besides working from within JetBrains Rider, you can perform the following actions from the command line:

On Windows, we recommend adding the path to the JetBrains Rider executable to the Path environment variable. Having done this, you will be able to invoke the JetBrains Rider commands from any directory.

On macOS and Linux, we recommend creating the command-line launcher to integrate JetBrains Rider with your shell. Then, you need to ensure that the created launcher script is within the search path of your shell so that it can be invoked system-wide:

  1. In the main menu, choose Tools | Create Command-line Launcher. In the Create Launcher Script dialog, provide the name and the path of the launcher, or accept the suggested values.
  2. Outside of JetBrains Rider, add the path and the name of the launcher script to your path.

To launch JetBrains Rider from the command line

Having enabled command line support, you can launch JetBrains Rider from the command line.

  • In the command line, run the <JetBrains Rider> command, where <JetBrains Rider> is the platform-specific launcher.
