.NET Watch Run Configuration
A .NET Watch Run Configuration (
dotnet-watch) that can be used in Rider.
dotnet-watch is a .NET global tool that can track file changes during development and restart the target command. This plug-in allows users to utilize the standard features of Rider’s run configuration to add a
dotnet-watch quickly to any runnable project. Runnable projects include console applications, ASP.NET Core web apps, and Desktop applications. This plug-in also exposes some of the latest flags from the .NET 6 implementation of
dotnet-watch, meaning not all flags are applicable if you use an SDK version before .NET 6.
- Project Selection
- Target Framework Selection
- Program Arguments
- Working Directory
- Environment Variables editor
- Use External Console flag
- Verbosity (
--verbose, or default)
- Suppress Hot Reload (only .NET 6)
- Before Launch options
