Development tool vendor JetBrains is working on a new cross-platform interactive development environment (IDE) for C#. Called Project Rider, the effort builds on IntelliJ and ReSharper technology.
“Project Rider is a stand-alone IDE built on the IntelliJ Platform, much like WebStorm, DataGrip, and our other IDEs,” blogged JetBrains’ Matt Ellis. “The difference, however, is that instead of re-implementing ReSharper’s features on the IntellIJ platform, which runs on the JVM, we’re using ReSharper in a headless mode, out of process, and communicating with it via a very fast custom binary protocol.”
The company has not revealed a release date or pricing for the IDE.
