    Umbraco on Mac

    Hi

    I'm a total newbie to Umbraco and checking it out with regard to a possible work opportunity!

    I signed up for a 14 day trial with Umbraco cloud.

    I use a Mac so am unable to set up Umbraco locally "as standard" as it were.

    What I did see, literally in the last couple of days, is that Microsoft have announced that Web Matrix will be discoontinued now that they have announce Visual Studio Code, which will also run on Mac. Does anyone know if there are any plans for Umbraco to run with Visual Studio Code on Mac? This would stop me buying a PC laptop! :) Advice appreciated!

    Many thanks

    Graham

    We can't do that yet, VS for the Mac only runs with .NET Core applications and we have a ways to go before we can convert everything from regular ASP.NET to .NET Core.

    2 things you CAN do:

    1. Install a virtual machine with Windows
    2. Use the "UaaS CLI": https://our.umbraco.org/Documentation/Umbraco-Cloud/Set-Up/Working-With-Uaas-Cli/

    There might be some hope... this could be promising: https://www.visualstudio.com/vs/visual-studio-mac/

    and also: https://www.jetbrains.com/rider/

    Anyone had any success yet? Early days I know...

    Both still require Umbraco to be changed to use .NET Core, which is a large refactor that's underway but won't be finished until version 9.

    Not sure I follow... why would they require Core when both IDEs use Mono?

    ASP.NET non-core does not build on a Mac, and you still need to run your site somewhere that you're building against.

    Happy to be proven wrong!

    Just a comment. I tried the Visual Studio on a Mac, and I am almost certain that it could run .NET 4.6, but I couldnt see the version number, so I complained about it to Microsoft. I have attached a screenshot from their youtube video. There you can see 2 project templates for NET. The Core and something called NET.

    I cant check it again, since I don't have the Mac anymore.
