What is PackageManagement (OneGet)?
OneGet is a Windows package manager, renamed as PackageManagement. It is a unified interface to package management systems and aims to make Software Discovery, Installation and Inventory (SDII) work via a common set of cmdlets (and eventually a set of APIs). Regardless of the installation technology underneath, users can use these common cmdlets to install/uninstall packages, add/remove/query package repositories, and query a system for the software installed.
With OneGet, you can
- Manage a list of software repositories in which packages can be searched, acquired, and installed
- Search and filter your repositories to find the packages you need
- Seamlessly install and uninstall packages from one or more repositories with a single PowerShell command
Building the code
- Visual Studio 2013
- Powershell Tools for Visual Studio : http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/c9eb3ba8-0c59-4944-9a62-6eee37294597
- XUnit ( I currently use 22.214.171.124 ) : http://xunit.codeplex.com/releases
- You may need to manually install Windows SDK for getting tools like mt.exe.
- Resharper - http://www.jetbrains.com/resharper/
- Resharper xUnit test runner - http://resharper-plugins.jetbrains.com/packages/xunitcontrib/2.0.0
- Wix 3.9 : http://wixtoolset.org (only if you want to build the MSI and Installer)

#clone this repository > git clone --recurse-submodules https://github.com/OneGet/oneget.git # go to the project folder > cd oneget # optional: switch to the wip branch > git checkout wip # get the submodules for this branch > git submodule update --init # BUILD using Visual Studio, or from the command line: > msbuild PackageManagement.sln /p:Configuration=Release "/p:Platform=Any CPU" # If you want to send me changes, you should fork the project into your own # account first, and use that URL to clone it. # If you fork it later you can just change the origin by: # move the old origin out of the way. You could delete it if you want. > git remote rename origin original # add your repo url as the origin: # e.g. email@example.com:fearthecowboy/OneGet.git > git remote add origin <your-repo-url> # build & deploy binaries and run test build the packagemanagment.sln: msbuild PackageManagement.sln /p:Configuration=Release "/p:Platform=Any CPU" cd to the test folder .\run-test.ps1 will copy the files generated from the build to x:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\PackageManagement and update the PowerShellGet to x:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\PowerShellGet. Also run the tests.
Understanding the OneGet code repository
OneGet is under rapid development, and so you get to see just how the sausage is being made. I try to keep the master branch clean and buildable, but my own working branch can get pretty damn wild and I make no bones about some of this. I work fast, I make big changes, and I try to keep my eye on the target.
Feel free to clone the repository, and check out the different branches:
There are currently three branches in the git repository:
Contributing to OneGet
Contributions to the OneGet project will require the signing of a CLA -- contact @jianyunt for details...
In the immediate time frame, we won't be taking pull requests to the core itself, as we still have many masters at Microsoft to keep happy, and I have a lot of release process stuff I have to go thru to make them happy.
There are some exceptions to the where I can take Pull Requests immediately:
Pull Requests to the Package Providers are instantly welcome
Any unit tests, BVT tests or -Edge only features, we can take pull requests for as well
Docs, Wiki, content, designs, bugs -- everything gleefully accepted :D
Participating in the OneGet Community
I'm eager to work with anyone who wants to help shape the future of Package Management on Windows -- your opinions, feedback and code can help everyone.
We have an online monthly meeting at the beginning of each month on Tuesday from 10am - 11am (PST). Each month may have slight shift of either the first week or the second week. We will twitter the exact time as well as put a note on GitHub site. (everyone welcome!)
You can see archives of the previous meetings available on
All meeting notes are recorded under OneDrive PackageManagement
You can see issues, pull requests, backlog items, etc. in the OneGet Dashboard
