  1. CS says:

    JetBrains, please add c# .net mono suport :(

    I can’t stand monodevelop on linux ..

    You wanted to make the best universal IDE but you miss one of the most used technologie C#, why ?

    Can you please give us some explanation ?

    • Maxim Mossienko says:

      We have no figures for claiming C# technology to be one of most used ones outside Windows world.

      • Kleber says:

        C# could not be the most used language outside windows world, but Mono is one of them. Mainly because of Unity uses it and for professional developers, this is the best choice in that platform.
        Today, C#/Mono is one of the most popular programming languages, you can see in this post or this one too.
        I (and all the developers who love Idea and C#/Mono) don’t see a reason to not have an IntelliJ Idea version dedicated to the language. So please, respecting your passionate community, give us a more realistic reason.

        • Kim Ha says:

          Hi, I’d like to weigh in here. I use C#.Net on Windows at work, and I’d love to use it on Linux as well. What’s keeping me from using it is the lack of a proper editor.

      • Robert Wallis says:

        Unity has over 4 million registered developers. You could call Tony Garcia at Unity and ask him how many of them are Mac developers.

  2. Maxim Mossienko, what about Unity3d? The main language for this is C#, Unity is a cross-platform development tool and by Unity’s own stats, they own 45% of the game engine market, and has over 3,000,000 registered developers:

    http://unity3d.com/public-relations

    And don’t forget about Xamarin, cross-platform C# who have over 800,000 developers:

    http://xamarin.com/platform

    Surely you must have seen that a C# plugin is the most requested plugin for IntelliJ by your users right?

    https://plugins.jetbrains.com/wishlist/show?pr=&wid=193

    Sorry to sound so frustrated, but there is a real demand for a cross-platform C# tool by Jetbrains for quite some time now and it just appears that we’re being ignored, especially now that Microsoft are now uncoupling C# from being Windows only, isn’t it time that Jetbrains did the same?

    • Maxim Mossienko says:

      Thank you for references. We are actually evaluating real demand for a cross-platform C# IDE. As to larger number of registered Unity3D developers, our current observation of game developers is that they have weaker demand of quality (paid) tools because (usually) game source code doesn’t live long and given that doesn’t need much refactoring for example.

      • Thanks for your response Maxim, it’s great to hear that JetBrains is actively looking into this.

        Just to add to the game development aspect, with social and mobile game development the development model has changed (and still is changing) where successful games are no longer just shipped and then forgotten about — regular content updates to these games is becoming a very popular method for developers to give their games a much longer life.

      • Martin says:

        That would be amazing. Developing games using Unity3d and Intellij on my Mac would be absolutely perfect! Fingers crossed…

      • Jeron Coolman says:

        Please support C#…

        Visual Studio is expensive and bloated.

        …a lot of us would drop visual studio if we could use something else.

        I am getting tired of having to run Visual Studio just for coding the C# WCF web services layer and IntelliJ IDEA for everything else. I’d rather just have one IDE.

      • We need good IDE for C# on Mac! .Net Core is a good reason.

      • One idea that you might want to look as a trendline developing, is that the gap between professionals and hobbyists is closing month after month.

        On the same time, programming is starting to appear on every curriculum in any sector, from K-12 schools to business management. Soon everybody will be able to code a little, making coding a far more famous practice in our society.

        If you consider that Unity is not a game development framework as a philosophy, but an ecosystem for interactive media (you can see that by the announced “director tool” from Unite 2014, for example). And they see things from the right angle, and this is the reason why the are the disruptive innovators of game dev frameworks for the last years.

        You can see that supporting Unity from now, may be a good move that could be used for your products to enter the game development market from now.

        The 8th revolution of games is on the horizon, with gamification on every aspect of our social lives, supported by mobile technology and AI. At that era, the code refactoring requirements of games may change and Intellij could be a strong part of that.

        I just wanted to give you an idea of how I see the future unfolding.

        Cheers!

      • Ash Blue says:

        I want to chime in and say myself, game developers, and many others would gladly pay for a great Mac C# editor.

  3. Ray Pendergraph says:

    My colleagues and I have often wondered about this. It seems like a no brainer and at one time I think it was even officially on the table from I think. We have often speculated that the only logical reason JetBrains has not ventured into this space (at least for Windows users) is because they had some agreement with Microsoft ($$) who of course wants to push their Visual Studio for this. Microsoft knows as well as anyone that if JetBrains wrote an IDE for C# it would be pretty much game over for them.

  4. snowdream says:

    i add a dependence lib( compile ‘com.loopj.android:android-async-http:1.4.5’
    ) in the build.gradle of the sub module which named app.
    then ,i can not resolve the dependencies, and it can not be shown in the external libraries too.
    can you help me?Thank you.

    Here is my project:
    https://github.com/SnowdreamFramework/android-gradle-template/tree/develop

  5. Eric Hartford says:

    Please add mono and C# support. I use a mac.
    I really hate having to use IntelliJ for everything else, and then boot up a Windows VM to work on C#.
    Charge me an extra $100 for “IntelliJ .Net Edition” that includes this feature, and I won’t even blink.

  6. And I’m here to raise my hand for C#/mono support in IntelliJ

  7. Nathan Green says:

    I would also like to have C# support, at least to the level that Python is currently supported.

  8. Jay Brummels says:

    I also raise my hand for c# support in IntelliJ, especially now that .NET vNext is open source

  9. Alex Hart says:

    Given that MS just open sourced the CLR for .NET, I’d hope that a .NET plugin would be on the way for IntelliJ =)

  10. Nick LaRosa says:

    I also want C# support in an IntelliJ editor. There are a lot of things that are just not the same in Visual Studio and I really want to be able to use one editor for all of my projects.

  11. meddlepal says:

    +1 for C# now that it is open source and not Windows-only…

  12. SG says:

    C# in IntelliJ? Yes please, VS in a VM is awful. Take my money!

  13. AM says:

    After going open source with CoreCLR and targeting to have it under linux and mac sometime in April-May I am pretty sure C# will receive a lot attention and will be quite on demand under linux and during time will even fully compete with Java there.
    Do guys still think we don’t need a kick ass C# ide from JetBrains on linux and Mac ?

  14. George Cook says:

    +1 mono c# support. it really is a no brainer. I think you guys need to do more research. This idea that code isn’t long-lived for game dev is nonsence. Code get’s copied and pasted between many games.

    As for Xamarin, we’re now starting to see enterprise apps (even first tier banks) using it. And I’m pushing for it in my company too.

    I don’t think you guys have done any hard-core research on this, if you had, we’d already have a beta c# ide right now. I’m sure you’re just throwing away good money. So many iOS developers who work for consultancies are starting to go cross platform – and they’re not doing it in phone gap. it’s c#. Games too.

    That’s a lot of people who love their macs, needing to write c# who are currently using Xamarin Studio/Monodevelop.

    That’s a lot of license money you guys could/should be making.

    That’s a lot of developers who would be far happier in their day to day work.

  15. Rolf Hunt says:

    I would gladly pay for a JetBrains C# replacement for Monodevelop supporting Unity. Unity is amazing, Monodevelop is not.

    And I can assure you that at least my apps are not write once and throw away. I want as much reuse and refactoring power that I can get. I have used IDEA for Java development for about a decade. Please bring something like that to the C# world.

  16. Zaphr Labs says:

    As die hard OSX and Unity users we would pay a fortune for this and our whole team would switch overnight =)

    We have tried monodevelop, xamarin, sublime text, Atom and have unhappily fallen back to just trying to live with monodevelop for simplicity. We also tried running visual studio + resharper + unityvs in a windows image through parallels with unity running in OSX. It did work ok using a shared folder structure but the latency was a little too much to live with. We even tried switching to windows just for visual studio but the pain was worse then just learning to live with monodevelop in osx =)

  17. Evgeny Nepomnyashchiy says:

    Hello, company where I’m working bought Intellij IDEA and I bought it for a home, it’s awesome!!! I use it for everything, except Unity C# scripting. Please, take my money and add support of this language. It’s annoying to use MonoDevelop. Please!

  18. Mustafa says:

    You know that there is fork of Intellij called Consulo IDE its intellij with C# support. JetBrains will lose all C# users soon.

  19. Lukasz says:

    Once I tried Idea, I could not use MonoDevelop anymore. I also vote for Unity scripting support in Idea!

  20. Nicolas Bousquet says:

    Same here, I’m migrating from AIR development to Unity 3D, as many of us flash old timers are. And the idea of forsaking IDEA for MonoDevelop would make me feel like leaving IDEA for FlashDevelop. Hell, the fact that I cannot use IDEA for Unity code kills my motivation for learning the new skillset. IDEA is like your favorite cosy couch. Don’t leave us coding on the stone bench !
    And since you already ship ReSharper, I guess most of the code is ready.
    Make a ReSharper for IDEA and I, too, will gladly spend the required fee to acquire such a tool.

  21. Jason Sheedy says:

    +1 for Intellij integration with Unity / C# .. monodevelop is such a piece of crap.

  22. Alexey says:

    C# support would be awesome! Of course, with Xamarin support.

  23. Mark Bevels says:

    Adding c# support to IntelliJ IDEA would be awesome! I run small consultancy firm providing cross-platform, cross-language services. And as much as I love IDEA ( I am constantly updating my licenses) there is only one time I need to switch to something different. That is while using Unity3d.
    Recently started bootstrapping my indie venture and again… same scenario. Still keeping PC around for Microsoft stuff. Having c# support would be amazing.

    @Maxim Mossienko: you were about numbers and you are wrong about length of code life. Some games are just one time thing – like some applications. But correct me if I am wrong saying that people re-use components that are then maintained for years. There is Asset Store where developers push packages and quality ones have often hundreds of releases having code base constantly maintained. But that is just components. Life-cycle of the game itself isn’t short neither, is it? Development can easily take over a year for team of devs and then there is still maintenance afterwards.

    Speaking of Unity3d. I tried Visual Studio but Microsoft is doing it wrong, even the newest IDE is too heavy comparing to IDEA. Xamarin is trying hard but they are far behind. That is thousands of developers use tools like SublimeText Editor, hacking it around to make it work with Unity3d. Could you believe that what is available out there is so bad that people actually drop debugging features in order to get better user experience while bashing the code?!

    Now here other scenarios to consider.
    Firstly there are many companies that use more than one language with developers that switch between languages, they do Unity3d with c# too, right?
    How about all the indie studios using Unity3d and c# and creating back-end for their games in php, nodejs, java. They could benefit from it too.

    Lastly, to address “free assets”. Well… people who are doing little project over time don’t want to spend money. Agreed on that one. However serious developers, who actually not only want to complete the game within reasonable time frame but also make money DO SPEND money. Reality is that buying assets, or paying to have them made is far more expensive as buying licenses. We ARE your clients.

    To conclude. Keep up the good work! Jetbrains is AWESOME! You are on the mission of creating tools every developer would ever need, so keep it up and give us what we don’t have and we do need c# support!

    Big up-vote for c# support from me and all London indie devs who are struggling with MS tools.

    Have a good day! :)

  24. Arne Gockeln says:

    +1 for Intellij idea integration with Unity/C# on Mac OS X/Linux! I use Unity not only for game development but for visualisation and customer projects outside of game development!

  25. Kevin Dietz says:

    I’m also looking for a cross-platform bonafide IDE for C#/.NET. Now that MS is opening up .NET to the non-Windows world, this makes perfect sense.

    Let me explain my situation.

    I’ve run Windows most of my life, but I’ve been dabbling with Macs for several years. I would have switched fully to Mac by now if it wasn’t for being tied to Windows via Visual Studio. I’ve been writing C#/.NET code for 14 years and have never been compelled enough to switch, so I keep writing in it. I have a serious cloud-based project that is written in C# and I don’t really have time to port it to Java (although I’m considering it).

    I really like C# and I would prefer to keep using it. I have, however, decided to move my primary computer over to the Mac. This means I have no viable alternative but to run Windows in a VM to get access to Visual Studio. But VMs are slow and not ideal for running IDE environments.

    The solution, therefore, is a bonafide C# IDE for Mac. JetBrains is the best positioned company in the world to do it.

  26. Daniel Rosenberg says:

    Now that Visual Studio Code is out with possibility to code C# on Mac, it would be great to see some competition. JetBrains is probably the best company to do it as I am an IntelliJ early fan.

  27. Marco says:

    Please, add C# support! I’m using IntelliJ at work as a Java developer but at home I’m a videogame C# programmer and I’m really addicted to IntelliJ! It would be wonderful to have it!

  28. yaroslav says:

    Please guys, make a miracle and make idea for c#. You could start funding company, I pretty sure that a lot of developers will pay you for that. We all know that you are the best in IDE development!

  29. Brian Willy says:

    +1 for C# IntelliJ integration.

  30. +1 from me for Jetbrains supporting C# / Mono.

    The .NET platform now has official MS support for *nix based systems so the demand for non Windows editors is likely to grow. VS Code is good for quick tasks and Xamarin Studio is decent but there isn’t anything to rival the power of Visual Studio and I don’t like having to run a VM to code on my Macbook. I honestly think there’s a market for this for Jetbrains.

  31. +1 for a C# ide!! Take my money!! I’ve been working with C# on Xamarin and VS since a few months ago and the thing I miss the most of doing java android development is the ability of using IntelliJ!!

  32. Pete Michaud says:

    +1 for C#, I’d buy it, no question.

  33. rokolczuk says:

    +1 for C# / Unity support in IntelliJ. Mono is a pain in the ass and I really don’t want to go back to Windows..

  34. I would also pay for this feature. MonoDevelop and Visual studios are both a giant pain in my lady parts, I’d really love to see unity/c# support in IntelliJ

    http://weknowmemes.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/shut-up-and-take-my-money.jpg

  35. Andrew Gerard says:

    +1 for Mono / C# support!

    IntelliJ is a fantastic IDE! I own IDEA and use it for Java, Dart, Javascript, SCSS, SQL. The only projects that we have which I cannot use it for are Unity-based :(

  36. Lorenzo Van Eenoo says:

    +1 C# IDE

  37. Михаил says:

    +1 C# IDE

  38. +1 C# IDE (for Unity and Xamarin development on Mac OSX)

  39. Nader says:

    +1 here

    Xamarin created a good framework, but the IDE is way behind :(
    I really hate the Xamarin Studio, can’t you build a Re-sharp plugin for Xamarin studio or a separate IDE?

    WE NEED IT UNDER MAC

  40. Nader says:

    Just to let you know how important c# is and you still ignore creating an IDE to support it outside windows http://www.tiobe.com/index.php/content/paperinfo/tpci/index.html

    Thanks, jetbrains are the best :)

  41. Joe says:

    +1 for the Mac / Unity / C# trifecta. I’m a part time indie, full time web developer and I have happily purchased and LOVE using JetBrains tools on my 9-5 (both webstorm and phpstorm). There is simply no other IDE that can even hold a match to what you guys have done. That being said, when I come home from work and want to clock time on MonoDevelop… the comparison makes my C# experience that much worse! I think you could ask any Unity Mac Dev about the problems with the platform and they will absolutely tell you the things we need to put up with.

    You act as if the alternative Visual Studio on Windows is a free choice, and my guess is that your feeling you can’t beat a competitor with a $0 price tag. But do you know how many MacBook Pro devs have shelled out cash for a second Hybrid Drive and a Windows license just to boot camp VS? I was willing to drop over 300 bucks, just for an improvement to MonoDevelop(and I still feel the Jetbrains IDEs have VS beat by a long shot). The problem there is that this situation is forcing me off the operating system I love, so as a Mac user I will never be able to fully back VS as the experience stands. Fact of the matter is Serious Developers use the best tools money can buy and Mac Users have more money to spare. So like Fry says “Shut up and take my money”, please!

  42. Santi says:

    Yeah! Please add c# mono support. I’ll pay for it in a second for my Unity projects!
    IDEA is THE best programming ide ever.

  43. neonleif says:

    Consulo looks really great for Unity3d: http://vistall.livejournal.com/tag/unity

  44. jrynlds says:

    +1 for C# ide for Mac and Win.

  45. Michal Gabriel says:

    +1 for C# ide for Mac and Win.

    We Need it!

  46. ayder says:

    +1 for C# ide for Mac and Win.

  47. Roman says:

    +1 C# IDE

  48. Ash Blue says:

    +1 C# IDE with Unity support. Do this and I’ll consider naming my first child JetBrains.

  49. Sergey says:

    I am using your Appcode for over 2 years.
    Now I am switching to the Unity3D development.
    So “+1” for C# IDE for Mac with Unity support!

  50. Another +1 for C#, I use WebStorm, PHPStorm and AndroidStudio at work, would love to have an editor for Unity which I mess around with in my spare time 😀 MonoDevelop is just not a good experience in comparison, at least I have issues with it -_- I’m thinking of getting into Visual Studio but would love to have something I’m already used to navigating.

  51. Keith Hostetler says:

    How is this not already a thing? Come on JetBrains, use those jetbrains of yours and make this thing. You guys make the best IDEs and should be all over this. :)

    +1 for C#

  52. Shinybob says:

    I develop in JS and C#. Love using IntelliJ for JS but hate having to move to another IDE for C#.

    +1 for C#

  53. Gunhan says:

    +1 C# IDE with Unity support.

    Dealing with “Visual Studio” and other IDEs it makes your life harder.

    We need JetBrains awesomeness for C# and especially for Unity game development.
