.NET Development On Mac

Hey guys,

I have a silly newbie question about setting up Rider.

I'm using mac and would like to work on a .NET-solution which doesn't support mono.
Do I have any chance to make it work without installing IDE on a virtual machine? is it possible to compile project remotely?

Hi,
I couldn't find an option. But cli way, could be to setup winrm or ssh and run the build like that remotely.

Hi Roman,

Have you spent any time on this problem? I'm encountering exactly the same issue and would love to explore how Rider can help me to avoid using a virtual/remote machine to run IDE but still use it for building sources.

Hello all. Have you tried these recommendations

Hello Alexandra. You completely missed the point. The question is not in developing .NET applications on *nix machine but using ANOTHER machine to build and run your program. These recommendations are only applicable if you want to use your mac as a machine where you actually build an application.

I too would *love* a solution for this. I use MacOS as my main development OS, where most of my development happens, and run parallels with Windows 10 to develop, build and debug a .NET Framework application.

I am really frustrated by the difference in IDE shortcuts and keybindings. Id like to develop in JetBrains Rider on Mac but have Rider connect remotely to the Win10 VM to build and debug the application.

Please assist with suggestions
