How to get started running Umbraco CMS on Mac

To get started with Umbraco CMS on Mac OS first have a look at the requirements for running Umbraco CMS with Mac OS.
Once you've made sure you meet the requirements it is time to install the Umbraco Templates on your system.
To do this follow the Install using .NET CLI guide.
With the templates installed on your system, it is now possible to create Umbraco projects.
To create a project, there are two options:
  • Continue creating projects using the .NET CLI.
  • Create new projects using Visual Studio.
To create new projects using Visual Studio, you can use the Install using Visual Studio guide.
Once you create a new project it will use SQLite by default on Mac.
