JetBrains Rider 2017.2 Help

Getting Started

Rider is a full-fledged, cross-platform .NET IDE. Rider can open, manage, build and debug a wide variety of .NET Framework, Mono and .NET Core based solutions, and provides editing support for most languages used in .NET development: C#, VB.NET, F#, ASP.NET syntax, XAML, XML, JavaScript, TypeScript, JSON, HTML, CSS, and SQL.

If you are new to Rider, you can get started with the first-steps guide or with the quick-start tips.

If you are already using Rider and have questions about specific features, try browsing the table of contents on the left or use the search box above the table of contents.

If you want to configure Rider to your liking or learn more about less known features, go to the Streamlining Your Work with Rider section.

You can also watch this 25-minute overview video where Maarten Balliauw explains what Rider is about and guides you through its initial setup and main features.
