Setup C# Visual Studio

On my Windows Laptop I have Visual Studio and can then create various different C# .NET apps. And easily compile and run them them inside Visual Studio.

How would I achieve this on NixOS? (I use home-manager)

Visual Studio (the IDE, not Visual Studio Code) is only available for Windows and for Mac. Your best best is probably to set up a Windows VM to run Visual Studio.


You can also try Visual Studio Code with OmniSharp plugin, or JetBrains Rider. They both are available in nixpkgs.
