NuGet Package Manager

I blogged about a new, free, open source package manager last month - which at the time we were calling “NuPack”.  We’ve since renamed NuPack to NuGet. Today’s ASP.NET MVC 3 release automatically installs it as part of the setup.

You can use NuGet to easily download and install both commercial and open source libraries within your projects.  For example, to install NHibernate and a LINQ extension library that someone has built for it, I could type “install-package NHibernate.Linq” within the NuGet package manager console inside Visual Studio:

When I press enter NuGet will automatically download all of the libraries (and their dependencies) and setup my ASP.NET MVC 3 project to use them:

There are now hundreds of open source .NET libraries within the NuGet package feed, and the list will continue to grow over time. 

We think NuGet will enable all .NET developers (not just ASP.NET MVC ones) to be able to more easily leverage and share functionality across the community, and make building .NET  applications even better.
