NuGet is a free and open source package manager for the Microsoft development platform (formerly known as NuPack).[1][2] It supports both the .NET Framework and native packages written in C++.[3] 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.

Since its introduction in 2010, NuGet has evolved into a larger ecosystem of tools and services.[4]
