In Detail

NuGet has made the process of finding and referencing libraries from Visual Studio much easier and has strongly contributed to the expansion of an open source ecosystem. In the three years since its release, it has become an essential tool for both consuming and publishing class libraries for the .NET framework.

A concise and practical guide to everything that NuGet has to offer to both consumers and publishers. Through many hands on examples, NuGet2 Essentials will demonstrate all of NuGet’s features and teach you how to use them in everyday development in a .NET framework.

Starting out by using NuGet for consuming third-party libraries, this concise guide continues with a detailed look at creating your own packages, and ends by teaching you how to set up your own internal server. Through practical examples, you will learn to manage versions of installed libraries on all development and build machines. You will also discover how to create packages for your own libraries so they can be easily consumed, no matter how much configuration they require. By hosting an internal server, you will have full control of packages being used in your development environment.

By the end of the book, you will know about everything that NuGet has to offer, and how it can make your development process better.

Approach

This concise guide is full of hands-on examples to guide you through all of NuGet’s features and use them in everyday development of .NET frameworks.

    Comments about oreilly NuGet 2 Essentials:

    As a developer, I have found it to be a concise, interesting and very useful introduction to Nuget. Authors Damir Arh and Dejan Dakic have covered Nuget Package Manager and related topics very brilliantly.

    It is so easy to read and the information is very interesting that each time you turn a page,
    you want to learn and know more about Nuget! Every topic in this book is covered with examples. You can download the example code files for all Packt books you have purchased from your account. Since All the examples are written in C# language, only basic knowledge of the language is required to start reading this book.

    Here is a list of the positive things, I found about the book:

    - Doesn't require any prior knowledge about NuGet
    - Example source codes are written in C#
    - All the concepts on real-world examples step by step with a section that explain you the whole process each time in every topic
    - Very comprehensive writing. Authors explained almost everything which makes things clear!
    - Very informative, even if you are a beginner, an intermediate or an advanced user
    - Covers all aspects of using NuGet, from the basics to the advanced scenarios of creating packages and hosting an internal server

    After you've read the book, you know how to easily find and refer third-party libraries from your projects, create packages from your class libraries for others to use and publish them to the official NuGet gallery and host your own internal NuGet server and publish packages to it.

    Since everything is covered related to Nuget Package Manager along with simple and easily understandable examples, I strongly recommended this book to every .NET developer who wants to learn more about NuGet. A must have `Essential` book.
