Run .NET MAUI apps with Visual Studio for Mac

VS for Mac 17.0 Preview version is not yet supporting MAUI applications. But you can run them on macOS too, but you will need a terminal window for it!

MAUI projects can not be set as a runnable project (yet)
.NET 6 Xamarin and MAUl projects are not supported with this version of Visual Studio. The included target frameworks are not supported: net6.0-android|net6.0-ios|net6.0-maccatalyst

If you are not familiar, how to set up your environment to start developing with .NET newest technology named MAUI, then read this article by me: https://www.banditoth.hu/2021/12/29/setup-net-maui-project-on-macos/

Build and run on macOS

Open up a terminal, and navigate next to your .sln file. Give out the following command:

dotnet build YourSolutionName -t:Run -f net6.0-maccatalyst

This will run your application on macOS. If you wish, you can change the last parameter to net6.0-android or net6.0-ios too.
