List of run/debug configuration templates
This page lists run/debug configuration templates available in JetBrains Rider. For detailed instructions on how to use them in your solution, refer to the related how-to pages.
|Name||Use it to||Required plugins|
|.NET Executable||Launch .NET applications and processes. This kind of configuration can be helpful to have a specific setup for an application that you want to run and attach the debugger to, or you can use it as part of a compound run/debug configuration when you need to launch multiple executables at once.|
|.NET Launch Settings Profile|
Run and debug .NET Core/ASP.NET Core applications that have their launch settings configured in a launchSettings.json file.
JetBrains Rider creates a configuration of this type automatically when you create or open a project that has its configuration in launchSettings.json, and initializes most of the configuraion parameters from this file.
Run and debug .NET and .NET Core projects of executable types (for example, console application, Windows Forms application, WPF application).
JetBrains Rider creates a configuration of this type automatically when you create or open a project of executable type, but you can add more configurations that target the same project but have different parameters.
|Attach to Node.js/Chrome||Attach to and debug already running Node.js applications.||Node.js|
|Compound||Run several run/debug configurations in parallel. This is useful, for example, if you want to launch various automated tests or client-server apps. The controls for each configuration will be available in a separate tab in the Run or Debug tool window.|
|Dockerfile||Created automatically when you run a container from a Dockerfile. This configuration builds an image from the Dockerfile, and then derives a container from this image.||Docker|
|Docker Image||Created automatically when you run a container from an existing image. You can run it from a locally existing Docker image that you either pulled or built previously.||Docker|
|Docker Compose||Created automatically when you run a multi-container Docker application from a Docker Compose file.||Docker|
|Grunt.js||Run and debug Grunt.js tasks.|
|Gulp.js||Run and debug Gulp.js tasks.|
|HTTP Request||Execute HTTP Requests directly in the JetBrains Rider either individually or as part of a compound run/debug configuration.||HTTP Client|
|Jest||Run and debug Jest tests.|
|Mono Remote||Debug Mono applications on remote machines.|
|Native Executable||Run any executable file. In contrast to the .NET Executable configuration, this configuration will run any executable, and if it happens to be non-.NET code, debugging will not be available.|
|Node.js||Debug Node.js applications.||Node.js|
|Nodeunit||Run and debug unit tests for Node.js applications||Node.js|
|NPM||Run and debug npm and Yarn scripts locally, that is when JetBrains Rider itself starts Node.js installed on your computer and initiates script execution.|
|Protractor||Run and debug AngularJS unit tests using the Protractor test runner.|
|Publish to custom server||Publish classic ASP.NET and ASP.NET Core apps to a custom server.|
|Publish to Folder||Publish classic ASP.NET and ASP.NET Core apps to a folder (Windows-only).|
|Publish to IIS||Deploy an ASP.NET Core web application to local and remote IIS, Kudu (Azure Web Apps), as well as create an MSDeploy package. Under the hood, it makes use of MSBuild and MSDeploy to package and publish our application.|
|React Native||Run and debug React Native applications.|
|Spy-js||Trace Web applications using the Spy-js tool.||Spy-js|
|Spy-js for Node.js||Trace Node.js applications using the Spy-js tool.||Spy-js|
|Unit Tests||Run/debug configurations of this type are created and removed automatically when you create and close unit test sessions|
|XSLT||Run XSLT scripts.||XPathView + XSLT|
