I'm working with C# on Mac with this and it works perfectly fine. Debugger and intellisense is good enough to work with.

It will never be as advanced as VS but then again, VS will (probably) never come to Mac.

Can you share your instructions for setting it up please?

I found it very unconvincing last time I tried - I had weird errors installing .net Core, weird errors setting up tools in VS code and found no definitive instructions. I expected it to work pretty much out of the box... but no.

I installed .Net Core on a brand new Mac following the (seemingly very simple) instructions on Microsoft's web site and had errors too. Not impressed with that aspect at all.

Not sure if my fixes were correct or if everything was working correctly so I just abandoned .Net Core on the Mac.

Okey guys there has been some additions in what you need to do nowadays because of some problem regarding encryption libraries.

What you do on mac is:

    brew update
    brew install openssl
    ln -s /usr/local/opt/openssl/lib/libcrypto.1.0.0.dylib /usr/local/lib/
    ln -s /usr/local/opt/openssl/lib/libssl.1.0.0.dylib /usr/local/lib/
Then download the .net core installer for mac and it will work. Also make sure you download the C# extension in VS Code.
