JetBrains Rider 2024.1 Help

Run and debug MAUI and Xamarin projects on macOS

You can run and debug MAUI and Xamarin projects the same way as you run other application types — by configuring the application startup properties in a run configuration and then launching this configuration with the debugger attached Shift+F9 or without debugging Shift+F10.

By default, JetBrains Rider creates a necessary run configuration when you create or first open a MAUI or Xamarin project. You can customize this configuration or add more configurations of the same type for different launch scenarios.

Create a run configuration for macOS

  1. Open the Run/Debug Configuration dialog in one of the following ways:

    • Select Run | Edit Configurations from the main menu.

    • With the Navigation bar visible (View | Appearance | Navigation Bar), choose Edit Configurations from the run/debug configuration selector.

    • Press Alt+Shift+F10 and then press 0.

  2. In the Run/Debug Configuration dialog, click Add New Configuration Add New Configuration Alt+Insert, choose the macOS configuration type, and specify a name that will help you identify this configuration in the future.

  3. Optionally, adjust the common settings of the configuration and configure before launch tasks.

  4. Choose a startup project of macOS type.

  5. Optionally, specify program arguments that will be passed to the executable when the configuration is started. Multiple arguments should be separated with whitespaces.

  6. Optionally, specify custom environment variables for the target executable in the following format:

  7. Click Apply to save the configuration.
