We’re pleased to announce some new features to MyGet build services. This feature allows you to add packages to your MyGet feed from any Git, Mercurial (hg) or Subversion repository out there. We’ll grab the sources, compile, package and make sure the result is listed on your feed. While still in beta, the feature is starting to take shape. In our latest release, we’ve shipped some interesting new features related to build services.
From your feed details page, you can navigate to build services. The “Add build source…” button has been around since the start and allows you to enter details of the source code repository manually. Because that can be a bit clumsy and since most public source code repositories out there have API’s available, we now support linking GitHub, BitBucket and CodePlex repositories with the click of a button!
After clicking one of these, you’ll be redirected to the code hosting provider for login.
After that, you can just check the projects you wish to add and link them automatically.
Apart from being able to easily link projects from GitHub, BitBucket and CodePlex, we also improved the build server itself a bit:
- Support for portable libraries
- TypeScript SDK 0.8.1.1 has been deployed
- Private repositories on BitBucket now can be referenced
- Git repositories with submodules can now be built (do note the submodule must be available over HTTP/HTTPS)
