How can we improve Microsoft Visual Studio for Mac?

Service Fabric Support

It would be AMAZING to be able to develop/debug/run Service Fabric applications on Mac.

Service Fabric runs on Linux, it'd be great to have a UNIX-like environment to work in!

        Since new SF upgrade to the version 3 and support of netstandard2.0 it's a bit easier than before. Full support is still missing, but You can get around it a bit. I personaly structure the solution in such a way that core functionality, contracts and presistence layers are strictly .net core and in separated projects, which mean: I can develop majority of stuff through unit/component/integration tests on my Mac since I'm able to execute the code actually.

        But beeing able to deploy to the Linux based on premise Cluster and debug, well that would be super-cool.

        critical for seamless x-plat dev. half of our devs on our current project have and want to develop on their macs. No problem for Core, but azure services developed locally are more problematic.

        Just trying to hack it somehow, and thinking how amazing it would be out of the box. But I know this is more for SF team, rather than for VS for Mac team.
