Visual Studio for Mac 2017 - professional developer software for macOS in the purchase version

Visual Studio 2017 for Mac in Professional Edition provides users with powerful features and productivity enhancements to the IDE to create cross-platform apps for macOS, Android, iOS, tvOS, or watchOS - on the mobile and desktop, on the web and in the cloud - with all the development, debugging, and refactoring tools in Microsoft, including graphical designers, code completion, source code management, and version control.

In addition to older development languages such as C and C++ and more recent variants such as C#, Visual Studio for Mac 2017 also supports Apple Metal, iOS, JavaScript, and other Web standards. Integrated live support for each language speeds up code writing, and debugging capabilities reduce the time spent developing apps. The quick view of the structure makes it easy for developers to navigate through the structure of a code, a central error list lists bugs during compilation and building as well as domain-specific problems for some languages by means of live analysis of the code during input.

Not only have key features such as IntelliSense, CodeLens, and refactoring been enhanced in Visual Studio for Mac Professional 2017, but code navigation and code correction have also been improved, making it easier for developers to work with code by highlighting code changes, references, and more in the Editor.

What does Visual Studio 2017 for Mac offer?

Brief overview of the IDE for macOS

Visual Studio for Mac features several distinct sections for managing applications, preferences, and creating and debugging code: The integrated toolbar on the Welcome page provides direct access to find recently opened solutions, open and create projects, configure apps, and view errors. Also available here is a news feed with new information for developers.

Languages and developer types supported in Visual Studio 2017 for Mac

Visual Studio 2017 for Mac supports many of the file types integrated in the Windows version, such as .csproj, .fsproj and .sln, as well as EditorConfig. In particular, Visual Studio 2017 for Mac supports development types such as ASP.NET Core Web applications in C#, F#, .NET Core console applications in C# or F#, pages created with Razor, and JavaScript and TypeScript. Furthermore, cross-platform Unity applications or games in C# as well as Android, iOS, tvOS and watchOS applications in Xamarin with C#, F# or XAML and also Cocoa desktop apps in C# or F#, besides web standards such as HTML, CSS and JSON. This allows Mac developers to always work in the integrated development environment that best suits their needs.

Many in the Windows-The functions and features included in the Mac version are also included in the Mac version, including the Roslyn Compiler platform used for refactoring and IntelliSense, MSBuild for Project System and build engine, and TextMate for the source editor. Mac users can also use the same engines for debugging Xamarin and .NET core apps, and the same designers for Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android.

Source code management in Visual Studio 2017 for Mac with Git

Visual Studio 2017 for Mac offers two systems for managing source code: Besides Subversion, this is mainly Git, the freely usable Standard was integrated into this version of the program, which allows several developers of a team to work on projects at the same time. Repositories can be managed directly in Visual Studio 2017 for Mac using buttons built into the IDE to transfer and publish code to a Git service. New push and commit features and SSH support extend the IDE's ability to use Visual Studio 2017 for Mac for Git tasks.

Get the big picture with CodeLens in Visual Studio 2017 for Mac Professional

The CodeLens feature is specifically designed to help developers keep track of every point in a project without having to leave the code. With CodeLens they can easily navigate directly to the individual functions. In addition, CodeLens in the editor not only shows all changes to the code, but also names the last developer who made changes and also indicates whether a test was passed at a certain point.

New refactoring capabilities in Visual Studio 2017 for Mac

Refactoring is one of the Standard when developing code in order to improve it afterwards without changing its behavior. Visual Studio 2017 for Mac Professional offers contextual actions and source analysis as well as other refactorings, such as overwriting, adding parameters (e.g. NULL checks) and arguments. Literals can now also be edited by inserting number separators and, especially for numeric literals, by changing the base from "hexadecimal" to "binary". In addition, Visual Studio 2017 for Mac offers the option to convert If statements to Switch statements and to remove unused variables.

Debugging in Visual Studio 2017 for Mac - with a focus on Xamarin

Visual Studio for Mac 2017 uses the Mono soft debugger for debugging, which is integrated into the Mono runtime to debug managed code across all platforms. It also provides a native debugger for Xamarin.iOS, Xamarin.Mac, and Xamarin.Android-based applications. Included are extensive quick views for special types, such as sizes, coordinates and bezier curves, as well as strings, colors and URLs.

Specifically for Xamarin applications, Visual Studio 2017 for Mac includes the Xamarin Forms Previewer, which allows developers to instantly preview the impact of a line of code on an application in a live preview. Xamarin Forms also includes improvements to IntelliSense for XAML, including support for bindings, converters, properties, controls, and more.

Instant control with IntelliSense in Visual Studio 2017 for Mac

The IntelliSense feature automatically completes APIs as they are typed using available IntelliSense completion lists, making developer processes not only faster but also more accurate. IntelliSense also allows APIs in general to be analyzed more quickly by restricting the amount of values above da via categories. The tooltips make it easier to examine API definitions, indicate problems as they are entered, and mark the relevant locations with a wavy line.

Other benefits of IntelliSense include filters to remove certain unneeded members from the completion list. The IntelliSense completion lists for C# in particular have tokens such as "Complete Word" or "List Member" and also provide quick access to members of a certain type, code snippets, and the names of variables, functions, and commands.
