Installation on MacOS?

I have used LinqPad on Windows for a number of years and have a purchased copy. But I would like to install it on a MacBook. With support for .NET Core it should work I just don't see any .dmg or package installers for Mac?


  • LINQPad 6 runs on Windows only, because it relies on WPF and WinForms, which run only on Windows for now.
  • Is it possible that, we can just remove all the Windows only library depedency, such as Util.Chart, so to make LPRun6.exe/LPRun6-x86.exe runing on other .NET Core 3.0 runtime/sdk supported platform.

    So that DevOps has other options to make good use of LINQPad 6?
  • It's probably doable, but a fair bit of work because it's likely that dozens of minor things will need changing. And more importantly, every time a build is released, it will have to be tested on multiple platforms, each of which has to be set up, updated and maintained. I'm not sure that enough people would use the command-line only version to justify this.
