NuPack Package management system for .NET

NuPack is a package management system for .NET. The goal of NuPack is to make the process of incorporating third party libraries into your solutions as simple as possible.

  1. Works with your source code. NuPack doesn’t touch anything outside of your solution folder. The changes that NuPack makes can be committed to source control
  2. Works against a well known central feed
  3. Command Line and GUI based user interfaces
  4. NuPack walks its way up the dependency chain and gets all the packages it needs, installing each. Packages can add scripts, content, references, and even run postscripts written in PowerShell if they need something fancy.
  5. From the Package Manager Console you get Intellisense for all the packages that are available

Lucene.Net and Azure


Azure Library for Lucene.Net

“Lucene works on top of an abstract store object called Directory. There are several Directory objects, including FSDirectory, for file systems, and RAMDirectory, for in-memory store. Azure Library for Lucene.Net implements a smart blob-storage Directory object called AzureDirectory which enables the use of Lucene.NET on top of Azure Blob Storage. AzureDirectory automatically creates a local cache of blobs and intelligently auto-uploads them on the fly. ‘s 1000 Silk icons


Silk web icon set, with 1000 16×16 icons , including report icons, some new picture icons, some small XHTML/CSS buttons, and some hardware drive icons. The feed icons have been brought into line with new standard, and all icons have been compressed to lower the filesize. For the sake of my inbox and my sanity, I’m now calling this set complete.
