Equivalent to visual studio 'add new file' extension


Maybe it already exists for rider, but one thing I'm really missing is the shift + f2 to add a new file (or dir) with this https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=MadsKristensen.AddNewFile extension.

What's so awesome about it that you can create nested files and based on the file name and extension some template code would be generated.

For example entering Interfaces/IApplication.cs would create a directory Interfaces with a file IApplication.cs in it, containing code

public interface IApplication {}


It's pretty much the only thing I'm missing (since continuous testing is coming in the next release) from VS.


Just wanted to say that I feel the same way, about this being the only thing I'm missing!


Hello all! 

Sorry for the silence. 

First, you can create nested files in the same way - by typing FolderName/FileName. 

Also, you can create File templates for specific files. 

Please, let me know if this is not what you're looking for. 

Best Regards,
