I'm using a rather old version of Visual Studio and I need to upgrade because nuget is telling me it's too old for some packages to work with. :-/
Which development environment are people favouring these days?
I'm looking into Visual Studio Code and Visual Studio Community at the moment.
Which of those are best for pure Umbraco development?
I'm using Visual Studio Community 2019 for all .Net development including Umbraco and I'm pretty satisfied.
I don't use VS Code as an IDE but rather as a good lightweight editor for things where opening Visual Studio would be overkill.
im trying to transition to jetbrains rider, difficult atm only becuase of familiarity with vs
Whats the reasoning for this @ismail?
all the cool kids are using it lol.
The ui is better, lots of nice features in it the test runner is awesome. It is more light weight and faster than vs. I am still finding my way round it. I was at prognet recently and seems everyone is using it
Thanks for mentioning Rider. I'd not heard of that one.
I'm using visual studio 2019.
I tried using VisualCode at first, but had too many issues getting custom controller logic to work (as per my forum question https://our.umbraco.com/forum/using-umbraco-and-getting-started/99152-create-custom-controller).
In Visual Studio it works rather effortlessly, in my experience.
Thanks for all the replies so far.
I'm errring on the side of continuing with Visual Studio based on what people have said. Seems the overall experience will be better for .Net development.
The fact that I've seen it's an 8 GB install and slower to use than the lighter weight options is one reason I'm looking for something else.
Rider from JetBrains looks like it might be a good option.
Rider for sure, its my daily driver for .Net dev
I would upgrade to VS 2019.
