JetBrains Rider vs Nuclide: What are the differences?

JetBrains Rider: A cross-platform .NET IDE based on the IntelliJ platform and ReSharper. It supports .NET Framework, the new cross-platform .NET Core, and Mono based projects. This lets you develop a wide array of applications including .NET desktop applications, services and libraries, Unity games, Xamarin apps, ASP.NET and; Nuclide: An open IDE for web and native mobile development, built on top of Atom (by Facebook). A unified developer experience for web and mobile development, built as a suite of packages on top of Atom to provide hackability and the support of an active community.

JetBrains Rider and Nuclide belong to "Integrated Development Environment" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by JetBrains Rider are:

  • live code inspection
  • fast
  • responsive

On the other hand, Nuclide provides the following key features:

  • Remote development. At Facebook, our web and back-end engineers work on remote development servers in our data centers. Nuclide provides a pair of packages that allow connections over SSH to a lightweight node daemon on the server, making possible remote file editing and syntax/type validation. Of course, this also works for VMs, enabling local development on HHVM, for example.
  • Hack language support. The Hack codebase is one of the largest at Facebook. First-class Hack support — including syntax highlighting, type-checking, autocomplete, and click-to-symbol features — has been an important requirement on Nuclide from the start. We're also excited that the growing Hack community outside the company will be able to enjoy dedicated IDE support.
  • Flow support. For both local and remote JavaScript development, Flow has brought type integrity and the ability to quickly refactor our React components and apps. As it does for Hack, Nuclide supports Flow-specific decorations and editor features in @flow-annotated files.

Nuclide is an open source tool with 7.99K GitHub stars and 745 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Nuclide's open source repository on GitHub.

Facebook, Instagram, and Movielala are some of the popular companies that use Nuclide, whereas JetBrains Rider is used by UGroop, Quote Software, Inc., and Hivemind. Nuclide has a broader approval, being mentioned in 8 company stacks & 5 developers stacks; compared to JetBrains Rider, which is listed in 6 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.
