.NET integrated development environment that enables you to work on various project types and integrates testing and debugging capabilities
Rider is an integrated development environment that can work with the .NET Framework and .NET Core, or with Mono projects. As a result, you can use it to create classes and libraries, web applications, standalone utilities, and so on.
The development solutions delivered by Rider are built on the ReSharper and IntelliJ platforms, and the application tries to deliver everything as fast as possible, in an intuitive manner, even though the collection of supported functions is quite extensive.
.NET IDE that enables you to work on various types of projects using custom configurations
Right off the bat, Rider prompts you for the type of projects you want to start developing: you can go for an empty one, or take advantage of the predefined types.
You can use Rider to develop .NET or . NET Core projects, and decide if you want to create a class library, a console app, an xUnit or NUnit test, a web app, and so on. The app enables you to set a custom solutions directory and also provides details about the project’s structure.
Edit and analyze code before making use of the built-in debugging capabilities
Within the Rider you get to access the solutions explored, open and edit source code files, and then run debug tasks. The output will also be included in the app’s main window so that you can review everything in real time.
For your convenience, Rider integrates code completion functions and various other tools designed to help you navigate the source code or perform context appropriate actions. The IDE can inspect the source code and help you fix various issues.
Furthermore, Rider integrates refactoring functions, allows you to work with alternative syntax, can split NUnit or xUnit tests into multiple sessions, is able to work with databases, integrates a NuGet browser, and so on.
Comprehensive IDE solution that packs everything you need to develop .NET projects
To sum up, Rider brings to a table a well-organized workspace where you can quickly start working on various types of .NET projects, review and fix code errors, and then run and debug the project.
Rider is based on two powerful platforms, IntelliJ and ReSharper, and helps you perform more than 2000 code inspections, helps you perform various actions depending on the current context, and so on.
