NuGet Gallery — Where packages are found
This is an implementation of the NuGet Gallery and API. This serves as the back-end and community website for the NuGet client. For information about the NuGet project, visit the Home repository.
Build and Run the Gallery in (arbitrary number) easy steps
- Visual Studio 2017 - Install the following
- ASP.NET and web development
- Azure development
- PowerShell 4.0
- Visual Studio 2017 - Install the following
PS C:\Code> git clone https://github.com/NuGet/NuGetGallery.git
PS C:\Code> cd NuGetGallery PS C:\Code\NuGetGallery> .\build
Set up the website!
PS C:\Code\NuGetGallery> .\tools\Setup-DevEnvironment.ps1
If you would like to configure your gallery instance to use MSA/AAD, please follow the steps listed here.
NugetGalleryproject is the StartUp Project and press
F5to run the site! That's it!
When working with the gallery, e-mail messages are saved to the file system (under
You can use an SMTP server instead by editing
src\NuGetGallery\Web.Config and adding a
setting. Its value should be an SMTP connection string, such as:
You can also turn off e-email confirmations by changing the value of
Visual Studio may modify the
applicationhost.config file. You can force git to ignore changes to this file
git update-index --assume-unchanged .vs/config/applicationhost.config
You can undo this with this command:
git update-index --no-assume-unchanged .vs/config/applicationhost.config
This should help prevent unwanted file commits.
You will find instructions on how to deploy the Gallery to Azure here.
If you find a bug with the gallery, please visit the Issue tracker and create an issue. If you're feeling generous, please search to see if the issue is already logged before creating a new one.
When creating an issue, clearly explain
- What you were trying to do.
- What you expected to happen.
- What actually happened.
- Steps to reproduce the problem.
Also include any information you think is relevant to reproducing the problem such as the browser version you used. Does it happen when you switch browsers. And so on.

The Git Workflow
This is the Git workflow we're currently using:
Clone and checkout the
When starting a new feature/unit of work.
Pull the latest. Begin by pulling to make sure you are up-to-date before creating a branch to do your work This assumes you have no local commits that haven't yet been pushed (i.e., that you were previously up-to-date with origin).
git checkout dev git pull dev
Create a topic branch to do your work. You must work in topic branches to help us keep our features isolated and easily moved between branches. Our policy is to start all topic branches off of the 'dev' branch. Branch names should use the following format '[user]-[bugnumber]'. If there is no bug yet, create one and assign it to yourself!
git checkout dev git checkout -b anurse-123
Do your work. Now, do your work using the following highly accurate and efficient algorithm :)
Test your changes (you're practicing TDD, right?)
Add your changes to git's index.
git add -A
Commit your changes.
git commit -m "<description of work>"
if (moreWorkToDo) go to #3.1 else go to #4.
Start a code review. Start a code review by pushing your branch up to GitHub (
git push origin anurse-123) and creating a Pull Request from your branch to dev. Wait for at least someone on the team to respond with: "" (that's called the "Ship-It Squirrel" and you can put it in your own comments by typing
Merge your changes in to dev. Click the bright green "Merge" button on your pull request! Don't forget to delete the branch afterwards to keep our repo clean.
If there isn't a bright green button... well, you'll have to do some more complicated merging:
git checkout dev git pull origin dev git merge anurse-123 ... resolve conflicts ... git push origin dev
Be ready to guide your change through QA, Staging and Prod Your change will make its way through the QA, Staging and finally Prod branches as it's deployed to the various environments. Be prepared to fix additional bugs!
