Paket

A dependency manager for .NET with support for NuGet packages and git repositories.

Why Paket?

NuGet does not separate out the concept of transitive dependencies. If you install a package into your project and that package has further dependencies then all transitive packages are included in the packages.config. There is no way to tell which packages are only transitive dependencies.

Even more importantly: If two packages reference conflicting versions of a package, NuGet will silently take the latest version (read more). You have no control over this process.

Paket on the other hand maintains this information on a consistent and stable basis within the paket.lock file in the solution root. This file, together with the paket.dependencies file enables you to determine exactly what's happening with your dependencies.

Paket also enables you to reference files directly from git repositories or any http-resource.

For more reasons see the FAQ.

Troubleshooting and support

Prerequisites

Windows

Linux

  • up-to-date Mono (>= 5.0 required, >= 5.2 recommended, just install the latest nightly)
  • up-to-date MSBuild (>= 15.0, support for "Directory.Build.props" required)

On most distros, it should be enough to follow this guide and install mono-devel, which contains MSBuild. Note: if the paket build script fails at paket restore just rerun it a few times until it succeeds.

Quick contributing guide

  • Fork and clone locally.
  • Build the solution with Visual Studio, build.cmd or build.sh.
  • Create a topic specific branch in git. Add a nice feature in the code. Do not forget to add tests and/or docs.
  • Run build.cmd (build.sh on Mono) to make sure all tests are still passing.
  • When built, you'll find the binaries in ./bin which you can then test with locally, to ensure the bug or feature has been successfully implemented.
  • Send a Pull Request.

If you want to contribute to the docs then please modify the markdown files in /docs/content and send a pull request. Note, that short description and syntax for each command is generated automatically from the Paket.Commands module.
