Visual Studio Vs. Rider
Microsoft’s Visual Studio includes a single IDE with prototyping, design, modeling, and testing tools to create sophisticated, highly efficient, modern Windows-based web applications. The tool has numerous advantages, and it has become the standard choice for developing.NET applications. Microsoft provided the official IDE, and there was no better alternative available. However, things changed a few years ago with JetBrains’ Rider’s release, a cross-platform IDE (Windows, Linux, and macOS). It is written in Java and includes many features from the Visual Studio IDE.
Comparing Visual Studio with Rider
There are numerous features and parameters to consider when selecting the best option. They are:
1. Plugins and features
Visual Studio is the most successful in terms of plugins. Because it has been in use for over two decades, it supports a wide range of features and plugins. Check your current project requirements and the plugins and attributes required before moving to Rider.
Rider, like Visual Studio, supports integration with Git repositories and the use of patches, and the creation of shelves. Similarly, you can use ORMs from other companies, such as Business Developer from Devart, the same way you would with Visual Studio.
3. User Experience (UX)
Rider’s user experience is one of its main advantages over Visual Studio. The user interface is simple, straightforward, and responsive. The color scheme, keyboard bindings, and other features are all customizable. You can arrange multiple windows in any way you want, even collapse them, and save your changes.
In terms of performance, Rider outperforms Visual Studio. Rider is a good choice if you’re tired of slow performance, and it boots up faster than Visual Studio and compiles code more quickly.
6. Code Analysis
Rider outperforms the competition in code analysis rules, with over 1300 rules and over 600 rules in Visual Studio.
Rider’s debugging capabilities are far superior to those of Visual Studio. When debugging the code, Rider displays members of the current class and its ancestors, whereas Visual Studio does not.
Several factors determine the best IDE for your needs. Visual Studio has a massive market share in terms of community support or usage and is the market leader, but Rider is a viable alternative.
