ProGet is a Package management system, designed by the Inedo software company. It allows users to host and manage personal or enterprise-wide packages, applications, and components. It was originally designed as a private NuGet (the package manager for the Microsoft development platform) manager and symbol and source server. [1] Beginning in 2015, ProGet has expanded support, added enterprise grade features, and is targeted to fit into a DevOps methodology. Enterprises utilize ProGet to “package applications and components” with the aim of ensuring software is built only once, and deployed consistently across environments. [2]

Gartner lists ProGet as a tool aligned to the “Preprod” section of a DevOps toolchain being used to “hold/stage the software ready for release”. [3]

ProGet currently supports a growing list of package managers, including NuGet, Chocolatey, Bower, npm, Maven, PowerShell, RubyGems, Helm, Debian, Python, and Visual Studio Extensions (.vsix).

ProGet also supports Docker containers, Jenkins build artifacts (through a plugin) and vulnerability scanning.

It is possible to monitor feeds from the ProGet interface; these features are also available to be managed from a number of the clients with which it interfaces.[4]

Features[edit]

Some of ProGet's main features include:[5][6]

  • Feed aggregation
  • Connected feed filtering by package or license
  • Build/deployment server integration
  • Multiple feed support
  • Symbol & source server, avoiding the need for a separate symbol server for packages that contain program databases (PDBs)
  • Users-based security
  • Integrated LDAP
  • Automatic failover
  • Multi-site replication
  • Cloud storage, supporting Amazon S3 and Azure Blob package stores
  • Deployment records
  • Package promotion
  • Jenkins CI support
  • Vulnerability scanning
  • OSS License Filtering
  • Publish directly from Visual Studio
  • Webhooks

Platform and Users[edit]

Originally, ProGet was designed to run on Microsoft Windows[7] but beginning in Version 4.4, it can also run on Linux via Docker.[8]

ProGet is used by Asos.com[9], Cellenza[10], Abanca[11] WebMD Health Services, SiteCore[12] and Infragistics[13], among others.
