This package contains a .NET Core Global Tool you can call from the shell/command line.

dotnet-rider-cli

This is a simple .NET Global tool to launch JetBrains Rider from the CLI on Windows.

Installation

Windows-only for now:

λ dotnet tool install -g dotnet-rider-cli

Using a Mac or Linux?
You can enable lauching Rider via command line by going to Tools > Create Command-line Launcher, for more information see here.

Usage

To open the current directory:

λ rider .

To open a solution:

λ rider Thing.sln

Why?

I install Rider using the JetBrains toolbox, and I generally
use the Nightly builds, so the install location changes
a lot. I don't want to keep updating an alias, so I made this.
It finds all the installations of Rider under
%LOCALAPPDATA%\JetBrains\Toolbox\apps\Rider and runs
the most recent version it finds.

Hope somebody else finds it useful.
