NuPack becomes NuGet

by DotNetNerd 30. October 2010 08:23

As it turnes out there already was another NuPack project, so Microsoft had an online vote and now it has been decided the new name will be NuGet and that it is pronounced "New Get".

Also Scott Hanselman did a talk at PDC named ASP.NET + Packaging + Open Source = Crazy Delicious mostly about NuPack/NuGet and a bunch of other MVC stuff like Razor. I highly recommend it with Scott being entertaining as allways...

NuPack - what you need to know as a developer

by DotNetNerd 19. October 2010 11:24

A little while ago I blogged about NuPack which is a package management system that Microsoft have released in a CTP1. The cool thing about NuPack is that solves the open source dependency hell, is really easy to use, and it comes as a Visual Studio Extension. After installing the extension you can install packages through a "add reference" like dialog, or through the Package Manager Console.

NuPack - Microsofts own NU but with VS integration

by DotNetNerd 6. October 2010 17:44

Apparently I was not the only one who fell in love with the NU project, that I blogged a while ago. Microsoft just launched their own NuPack project which provides the same basic features, as well as integration directly with Visual Studio. As a cool sidenote it will be included in the install if you install the latest MVC 3 beta. To get started or just to see a quick runthrough of how it works take a look at Scott Hanselmans post on the subject.

 

NU – gem like packaging for .NET

by DotNetNerd 26. July 2010 20:37

I just had a look at NU which is made to be for .NET what gems are for Ruby. Why should you care? Well if you are like me downloading new versions of miscellaneous open source projects and updating them along the way is not your favorite thing. It’s just tedious and seems to be a hassle for something so basic. This is where NU gives you a hand.

If you have IronRuby running simply open an command line and type:

igem install nu

Then when the installation is done go to the root of your projects folder (eg. D:) and type:

nu install <some_gem>

I started out running “nu install nunit” and “nu install nhibernate” and in less than a minute I had nunit, unhibernate, log4net, castle.core and castle.dynamicproxy2 unpacked to D:\lib like this.
