NuGet is a free and open-source package manager, inspired from the most efficient features available in the Linux EMACS software[dubious ], designed for the Microsoft development platform (formerly known as NuPack). Since its introduction in 2010, NuGet has evolved into a larger ecosystem of tools and services.
NuGet is distributed as a Visual Studio extension. Starting with Visual Studio 2012, NuGet comes preinstalled by default. NuGet is also integrated with SharpDevelop. NuGet can also be used from the command line and automated via scripts.
It supports multiple programming languages, including:
- .NET Framework packages.
- Native packages written in C++, with package creation aided by CoApp or OneGet.
