What is the procedure to migrate an existing project from WebStorm to Rider?

Hi,

I have an application which uses a monorepo. It's entirely JS (using React Native and nodeJS on the backend).

I have a need for a .NET microservice, so I want to create a new directory in the same monorepo, and edit that in the Rider IDE.

I found on the forum that Rider basically includes WebStorm. 

Unfortunately, if I start Rider, and want to re-use the monorepo, I think I need to create a solution for it, but Rider tells me: the solution directory already exists.

Hi Arts R

When you work with JS in Rider, you open your project not as .NET solution but as a folder

Here you can find some tips on how to work with JS and Rider. 

If I understood correctly, in your case will be the following steps: 

  • open your project in Rider 
  • in a context menu of File System choose "Add | New project
  • add .net project that you need. 
  • also, you can choose there "Add existing project" and attach it. 

Please let me know if this is not what are you looking for and add some details, screenshots, and steps that you try. Thanks!
