Code analysis

Code analysis

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.

Code editing

Code editing

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.

Refactorings

Refactorings

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!

Unit test runner

Unit test runner

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.

Debugger

Debugger and more tools

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.

Databases and SQL

Databases and SQL

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.

Navigation and search

Navigation and search

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.

Front-end technologies

Front-end technologies

Rider comes with JavaScript, TypeScript, HTML, CSS and Sass support built in. Take advantage of the refactorings, debugging, and unit testing capabilities included from WebStorm.

Extensibility

Extensibility

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.

Rider for Unity

Rider comes backed up with Unity support.

Joachim Ante

Using Rider to write C# makes me happy. I have never seen code refactoring tools that actually work - always without exception. It's amazing when you can rely on it.

Dennis Doomen

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’s Rider.

Jeremy Miller

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.

Frans Bouma

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.

Thomas Weiss

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.
