JetBrains Rider 2018.2 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:

Enable a command-line launcher on Windows

  • Add the path to the JetBrains Rider bin folder to the Path environment variable (for example, C:\Program Files\JetBrains\JetBrains Rider\bin). After you configured the Path environment variable, you can run the JetBrains Rider commands.

Enable a command-line launcher on Linux and macOS

On macOS and Linux, create the command-line launcher to integrate JetBrains Rider with your shell. 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

  • To launch JetBrains Rider from the command line, type the <JetBrains Rider> command in the command line and press Enter. <JetBrains Rider> is the platform-specific launcher.
