VS2010, Nuget and oData (and Elmah)

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

Open LINQPad

Add Connection


enter the URL and proxy auth info

Sample LINQPad query (C# expression):


.Where(p => (p.Created >= DateTime.Now.AddDays(-5)))
