C# IDE Reccommendation
Apart from visual studio pro which requires [ ( 12GB .NET framework download ) , ( 16GB xamarin.forms download ), ( 9.7GB ASP.NET download ), ] Is there any better IDE i can use to get my C# project for mobile development done ? PS: I've made some findings myself and people recommend SearchDevelop and Rider but seem both does n't support Xamarin natives and Xamarin.forms

Mirielle🐶 [Inactive] Regarding the storage / hardware requirements for Visual Studio Profesional IDE, I learned a long time ago to just accept the fact that it will take up Gig-OH-bits of space. I've also conceded that with using feature-rich, pro-development tools, the more of a beast your machine is, the less frustrated you will be as a developer.
Microsoft Visual Studio is what we used during our intern. Assuming you are using Windows OS i would recommend you Visual Studio because the reasons are simple enough. Firstly, Visual Studio is free and the most loved IDE for mobile development with Xamarin and i dont think so any other exist(idk) that supports Xamarin.forms. And, most importantly in Visual Studio its very easy to use and include alot of free and open-source package manager designed for the Microsoft development platform called NuGet. Besides, you can get access to a lot of free tutorials in the net or youtube and the Visual Studio community is awesome.😍 You have a typo in your question, Visual Studio code is not an IDE. #Sorry for my grammar😅😄
Am assuming you are using a Windows platform Mirielle🐶 [Inactive]?
You can use normal Visual Studio and install only the parts you need.
Here's a listing of some alternatives, I don't keep up with Windows much (as I don't need to 😅) https://teckangaroo.com/best-ide-for-c-that-you-can-use-in-2019/
Mirielle🐶 [Inactive] by "free" i meant Visual studio community. As an individual developer VS community should work super fine(smoothly) for xamarin mobile dev. unless you're bothered about licensing and stuff. For running C# .NET is a must have thing. Yes i do think VS pro is "useless" for now assuming you are an individual developer and for me bcoz Im poor😅. Anyway, Happy learning!
visual studio code - is a code editor visual studio community - is the full IDE free
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/core/tutorials/with-visual-studio-code Following this tutorial, i'm able to run it on the vs version that as "code" beside it name
Thanks, i'll go through them.
Anthony I dont think Code blocks and notepad++ supports Xamarin native nor forms.
Visual studio my frend, visual studio
RKK , i've edited the post, the visual studio i bought doesn't have "code" but "pro" and it's expensive not "free" as you stated but now i'm finding it useless Ace , yes !.
I've got another version that has "code" which is meant for python and web. It won't run C# code, instead i'll be redirected to the store app
Visual Studio 👍🏻 Obviously
Hello no problem
code blocks but install a c# complier use jet brains notepad++ with an external Compiler visual studio all time favorite
Mirielle🐶 [Inactive] stick with JetBrains Rider
