Nubular - Gems for .NET
Nu will automatically download and install specified library packages into your lib folder, along with all their dependencies.
IMPORTANT: This is so alpha its omega...
For more information, check out the project wiki: http://nu.wikispot.org/
Inspired by bundler for ruby: http://yehudakatz.com/2009/11/03/using-the-new-gem-bundler-today/
Usage: nu -h/--help nu -v/--version nu COMMAND [arguments...] [options...] Options and Switches: -v, --version VERSION Specify version of package to install -r, --report Report on the packages currently installed in the lib folder. When called as a switch it will run the report AFTER executing the requested command. -V, --verbose -q, --quiet --json Run in JSON mode. All outputs will be in JSON, status messages silenced. -h, --help Display this screen
nu install log4net- Install the most current version of log4net in your gem cache, downloading it if required.
nu install log4net --version 1.2.3- Install version 1.2.3 of log4net, downloading it if required.
nu install log4net --report- Install log4net and then output a list of all the packages in the lib folder.
nu report- Just output a list of all the packages in the lib folder.
nu config lib.location ./third_party
nu config lib.use_long_names true
The following commands are available:
install PACKAGE [options...]- Installs the specified package into the folder configured in
--version VERSIONswitch can be used to specify a specific version of the package.
report- Outputs a report listing the currently installed packages in the lib folder.
config OPTION_NAME VALUE- Stores the specified value for the specified configuration option.
config OPTION_NAME- Displays the current value for the specified configuration option.
config command works a lot like Git's. You can pass in any string and the value will be stored. If there is code that cares about the value you set, it will be affected, otherwise nothing will happen.
These are the current active config values:
lib.location- The path to the library folder Nu will be placing the packages into. Defaults to
trueNu will place the packages in folders that include the version number. i.e.
log4net-1.2.3. Defaults to
false. (Note: this option can make it difficult to upgrade packages in the future as all the project references will have to be adjusted if the version changes.)
And, coming soon:
platform- Specifies the specific .net platform to target. (When a package cares.)
--json switch is useful for integrating with
--json will cause chatty stuff to be silenced and normal output to be JSON structures.
For debugging, using
--json --verbose will cause debug logging to
Hint: Use the
--json to have nu update with the final state of the folder.
The plan is that each new feature will be made available via JSON as well as through the normal CLI interface.
--version, to get the version of nu, does not work with the
--version as an option to INSTALL does though.
