C# Basics

C# Online Editors

This video is about C# online editors used in the browser. I am not talking about C# IDE like Visual Studio or Jetbrains Rider. I don’t want to confuse you with the IDE. Instead, I want you to start simple and focus on learning the language.

Actually, there are many C# online editors out there, you can use for coding but I have selected 3 for this video. I have used 2 editors very extensively for preparing this video series and it worked definitely very well for me. By the way, all the editors are lightweight and free to use in the browser.

If you wanna try more editors and choose the one that works best for you, then use the links at the end of this video for more options.

I don’t know about you guys. But I want a few basic things in the online C# editor.

First, it should have a Simple and Clean Interface. I don’t wanna see lots of ads popping up all over the page. Moreover, it must have an easy-to-use interface.

Additionally, I want Code Completion in the editor; I need auto-completion with better IntelliSense support, which can provide smart completion based on variable types, function definitions, etc.

Lastly, I want Syntax Highlighting to improve code readability.

You can write your code with any editor, but you’ll be much more productive with online code editors for instantly testing C# code snippets.
