XML Solution (SLNX)

Hola JetBrains teams.

Recently, I learned about Visual Studio’s new SLNX format. It’s an XML-based solution format that’s a modern replacement for the traditional .sln format. It’s more readable and can be edited outside of Visual Studio.

I was wondering if there’s any plan to support this SLNX format in Rider? It seems like a great feature that could make managing solutions even easier in Rider.

Thanks for considering!



Thank you for the suggestion! There is an open feature request in our tracker: RIDER-110777 Add support for Solution File Persistence Model (SLNX Format). Please upvote the issue and keep an eye on status updates there.


You guys are so cool for that!
