NuGet is a free and open source package manager for the .NET Framework (formerly known as NuPack).[1][2] NuGet is distributed as a Visual Studio extension, integrated with SharpDevelop, and included in the C# code snippet tool LINQPad. NuGet can be used from the command line and automated via scripts. NuGet supports native packages written in C++. [3]

Since its introduction in 2010, NuGet has evolved into a larger ecosystem of tools and services.[4]
