The Home repository is the starting point for people to learn about NuGet, the project. If you're new to NuGet, and want to add packages to your own projects, check our docs. This repo contains pointers to the various GitHub repositories used by NuGet and allows folks to learn more about what's coming in NuGet.
NuGet is being actively developed by the .NET Foundation. NuGet is the package manager for the Microsoft development platform including .NET. The NuGet client tools provide the ability to produce and consume packages. The NuGet Gallery is the central package repository used by all package authors and consumers and has a live deployment at www.nuget.org.
This repo contains design proposals for NuGet. It focuses on designs for the NuGet client tooling, NuGet.org public repository, and NuGet Package Manager inside Visual Studio.
The NuGet Docs are the ideal place to start if you are new to NuGet. They are categorized in 3 broader topics:
The NuGet Blog is where we announce new features, write engineering blog posts, demonstrate proof-of-concepts and features under development.
