Bootstrapping C# Solution in VS Code

I wrote a lot of C# code in Visual Studio for Windows, but just recently started using Visual Studio Code on Linux for C# projects. Here are some steps how I made it working.


I assume you have working Visual Studio Code and you already installed .net core 3.1. Take you time to make it working before continuing.

Install extension

The only extension you need is the C# for Visual Studio Code.

Create structure

There is no magic button to add new solution and its project, but adding it from shell is also very convenient.

Enable build and debug

When you first time open the directory you will be prompted to add missing assets. It will allow you to run (CTRL-F5) or debug (F5) your code.

Get the Medium app

A button that says 'Download on the App Store', and if clicked it will lead you to the iOS App store
A button that says 'Get it on, Google Play', and if clicked it will lead you to the Google Play store
