This topic is about the Sitecore platform. There is a similar topic for Sitecore Commerce.
Sitecore supports the NuGet package management system for distributing new Sitecore packages. This list answers some of the most frequently asked questions about using NuGet and Sitecore together.
What is the URL of the NuGet feeds?
The URLs for the NuGet feeds are:
When are the packages available: immediately or soon after a Sitecore release?
Our intention is to make the packages available as soon as the releases are available
What about hotfixes?
Sitecore currently has no plan for distributing hotfixes in this way.
Will there be a private feed for MVPs who get the release early?
We have no plans for a separate MVP feed yet.
Are there packages for CMS 7x., 8.0, 8.1, and so on?
We have released NuGet packages for every version of Sitecore since Sitecore 7.2 - including every update.
What about Nexus?
Nexus is also in the feed.
What about modules?
We release NuGet packages for every module - if possible.
What about the external references: NewtonSoft, Telerik, and so on?
External referenced assemblies are handled as follows:
What about the Copy Local flag in the Solution Explorer in Visual Studio?
We have not done anything to set Copy Local on referenced assemblies because NuGet v. 3.x does not support the creation of additional PowerShell operations when consuming the packages using project.json.
What is actually in the packages?
The packages consist of several levels:
Can we use Hedgehog or the SIM tool for NuGet packages?
Sitecore has worked closely with the Hedgehog team and in future they will consume NuGet packages directly from this feed.
Sitecore does not recommend using NuGet packages that are generated by the SIM tool, and developers should move to use the latest version from this private feed.
Where is the Sitecore license for NuGet packages hosted on MyGet?
You can find the license file here: Sitecore MyGet License Agreement.
What about support?
Sitecore NuGet packages are provided "as is". Support is provided on a best effort basis, without any SLA, and designed mostly for feedback.
Follow the instructions at https://kb.sitecore.net/articles/654910 to contact Sitecore Support. Remember that opening a support ticket requires Sitecore Certification and a valid Sitecore license.
