VS2010 package manager: ‘Nuget’
It’s a VS2010 extension -uninstall the existing one and get the latest via Tools, Extension Manager.
For a given project, say to install the Nancy package/nuget:
Tools, Library Package Manager, Package Manager Console:
PM> install-package Nancy.Hosting.Aspnet
Elmah is a useful package for error logging.. add it.
It was referred to by ‘Ha and Ha’ at http://docs.nuget.org/docs/start-here/videos
http://nuget.org is the gallery for all the packages
There is an oData service there, and that is how VS2010 i/f gets at the packages.
Therefore can use LINQPAD to get at the oData stream:
in VS2010, Tools, Options, Package Manager, Package Sources -hover over the blank checked line… see the URL for the oData: https://nuget.org/api/v2
enter the URL and proxy auth info
Sample LINQPad query (C# expression):
.Where(p => (p.Created >= DateTime.Now.AddDays(-5)))
