JetBrains Rider 2020.1 Help

Get 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 help search above.

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

If you think that something is not right with your Rider installation, visit our support portal, where you can search through the knowledge base, join the community forum, and submit your problems to our support team.

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.
