Visual Studio For Mac 10.10.5

Posted on

I am using Visual Studio Code to develop an ASP.NET 5 application on Mac. The issue I am having is that I don't get any IntelliSense support (e.g. Available class methods) beyond simple autocomplete for methods and variables names that I previously typed. I would like to build apps in C# using Visual Studio 2015 iwth the Xamarin plugin. It does require a connection to a Macbook or iMac machine in order to compile.

  • After installing the latest .NET 5 SDK, developers of .NET Core 3.1 apps might see an error indicating 'The ASP.NET Core developer certificate is in an invalid state.'. Running dotnet dev-certs https --clean then dotnet dev-certs https --trust from the Terminal will fix the issue.

  • If you're already on Big Sur beta and can't use the updater, visit the Visual Studio for Mac website and download the installer.
