Incredible .NET IDE with the power of ReSharper! Rider is used across our entire dev team using Windows and macOS.
Director of Engineering, Full Circle TMS
JetBrains Rider is a cross-platform .NET IDE based on the IntelliJ platform and ReSharper.
Rider supports .NET Framework, the new cross-platform .NET Core, and Mono based projects. This lets you develop a wide range of applications including .NET desktop applications, services and libraries, Unity games, Xamarin apps, ASP.NET, and ASP.NET Core web applications.
Rider provides 2200+ live code inspections, hundreds of context actions and refactorings brought by ReSharper, and combines them with the IntelliJ platform's solid IDE features. Despite a heavy feature set, Rider is designed to be fast and responsive.
As well as running and debugging multiple runtimes, Rider itself runs on multiple platforms: Windows, macOS, and Linux.
Rider boasts 2,200+ live code inspections, with automated quick-fixes to resolve detected issues individually or in bulk. Solution-wide error analysis will monitor code issues and let you know if anything goes wrong, even in files that are not currently open.
Rider's rich editor features different kinds of code completion and code templates, auto-inserting matching braces and import directives, quick info tooltips and gutter icons for inheritance navigation, context actions, and much more.
Most of ReSharper's 60+ refactorings are already available in Rider, and its 450+ context actions are all there. Rename, extract methods, interfaces and classes, move and copy types, use alternative syntax, and a lot more!
Rider helps you run and debug unit tests based on NUnit, xUnit.net, or MSTest. You can explore tests, group them in different ways, break them down into individual sessions, see test output and navigate to source code from stack traces.
Rider includes a debugger that works with .NET Framework, Mono and .NET Core applications, letting you step, watch, evaluate, and run to cursor. Other tools include a stack trace explorer, NuGet browser, and VCS and database support.
Work with SQL and databases without leaving Rider. Connect to databases, edit schemas and table data, run queries, and even analyze schemas with UML diagrams.
Jump to any file, type, or member in your code base instantly, as well as quickly find settings and actions. Find usages of any symbol, or navigate from a symbol to the base and derived symbols, extension methods, or implementations.
True to its roots, Rider supports a wide array of plugins developed for ReSharper and IntelliJ Platform. In addition to the bundled plugins (such as those for VCS, F#, and Unity support), plugins that support Markdown,
.gitignore files, and Python scripts are available.

JetBrains Rider is the first tool I install after repaving my development machine.
I haven’t launched Visual Studio for months after I switched to JetBrains Rider.
Working with branches has never been so smooth since I started using JetBrains Rider.

JetBrains Rider is my C# development tool of choice these days on both OS X and Windows. If you’re a longstanding ReSharper user, you’ll find it to be an almost seamless transition. I highly recommend the developer-friendly keystroke navigation and fine grained debugger support.
In Rider, I just focus on working with my code, as it should be, instead of fighting my IDE. Rider gave me back the joy in writing .NET code.

Switching to JetBrains Rider was a great decision. Our team has never experienced an IDE that can communicate with Unity in such a flawless and efficient manner. We would highly recommend JetBrains Rider to anyone who aims at improving the efficiency and accuracy of their workflows.
An IDE can make or break a developer’s day. When JetBrains introduced Rider (C#) we jumped on board as fast as we could. Having been there at every step of the way in Unity’s evolution of IDE integrations; working with Rider has been nothing but an absolute joy. With the introduction of CLion (C++), we were so excited we created an integration plugin for Unreal. Both of these tools help our team on a daily basis, allowing developers to perform their tasks quickly and efficiently, all the while seamlessly integrating with numerous parts of our pipeline.
Really pleased with how well JetBrains Rider works on my MacBook. It’s blazingly fast and the debugging experience in C# is at least as good as Visual Studio. Also, it gives me all the benefits of ReSharper out of the box! Loving it. Thanks JetBrains for another great product!
