3 simple steps to publish a nupkg to MyGet using NuGet Package Explorer 1.6

Today, Luan Nguyen (@dotnetjunky) announced the release of NuGet Package Explorer (NPE) version 1.6. Those of you who installed/updated yet will have noticed he did a great job in improving the look-and-feel of the app, but I wanted to do a shout out here and point you to the feature I'm most excited about. As you can read in the release notes, NPE now supports publishing packages to a custom source! Now how convenient is...

Delegate feed privileges to other users on MyGet

One of the first features we had envisioned for MyGet and which seemed increasingly popular was the ability to provide other users a means of managing packages on another user’s feed. As of today, we’re proud to announce the following new features: Delegating feed privileges to other users – This allows you to make another MyGet user “co-admin” or “contributor” to a feed. This eases management of a private feed as that work can be...

MyGet now compatible with NuGet Package Explorer v1.5

Most of you will agree that Package Explorer is a major part within the NuGet ecosystem. In preparation for the latest version 1.5 release, Luan Nguyen (aka dotNetJunky) pointed us to an incompatibility issue with MyGet (thanks again for that!). A new package property IsLatestVersion was added and Package Explorer depends on it for the improved Select package dialog as explained here. I'm glad to announce that MyGet is now using this property as well, with a...

Adding NuGet packages from the official feed to your MyGet feed: some improvements

One of the things we want to improve on MyGet is the add-package functionality from the official NuGet feed. We felt this user experience could be better, so here's a first step! First of all, the default search behavior has changed (and we hope improved as well!): the term you enter in the search box is used now to scan the NuGet package ID and Title only the default search method is StartsWith (self-explanatory I...

Get your local NuGet repository online in a private MyGet feed

One of the MyGet features I've been working on lately should make it easier to populate your private feed with the NuGet packages you want. One of the specific use cases for MyGet is to be able to quickly set up a private feed with your own packages, which you might have in a local repository on your computer. Before MyGet, you could make this feed available to other computers by sharing your repository for...

MyGet now supports pushing from the command line

One of the work items we had opened for MyGet was the ability to push packages to a private feed from the command line. Only a few hours after our initial launch, David Fowler provided us with example code on how to implement NuGet command line pushes on the server side. An evening of coding later, I quickly hacked this into MyGet, which means that we now support pushing packages from the command line! For...

Creating your own private NuGet feed: MyGet

Ever since NuGet came out, I’ve been thinking about leveraging it in a corporate environment. I've seen two NuGet server implementations appear on the Internet: the official NuGet gallery server and Phil Haack’s NuGet.Server package. As these both are good, there’s one thing wrong with them: you can't be lazy! You have to do some stuff you don’t always want to do, namely: configure and deploy. After discussing some ideas with my colleague Xavier Decoster,...
