    I'm wondering if you have any tip for a good app to write some basic c# code in no graphic.
    When I did use to run Windows I did use Notepad++ but as far as I can tell Notepad++ are not ported to Mac yet sadly.

    SublimeText is an excellent editor - but does require a license (it can be used if you're willing to click through the occasional "buy me!" message). I found it to be worth the money to reward the developers.

    There's also Microsoft's Visual Studio Code - basically a fancy programmer-oriented editor, but has many extensions to let you compile and debug in several languages (including C#).

    I still love Notepad++ on Windows for heavy-lifting of text files, but for coding, Sublime and VSC are better (for me, at least!)

    +1 for Visual Studio Code. For a Microsoft product, it's actually not bad... ;)

    Microsoft have recently released Visual Studio for macOS in preview (it's basically a rebranded Xamarin developer studio with additional functionality and made to look more like Visual Studio on Windows) and it can be downloaded here:

    It's a pretty solid IDE and worth a look IMO
