The Nu package management system and DiffPlex

I published the DiffPlex gem for use with Nu.  Nu is a package management system for .NET which is built on top of Ruby’s gem system. Nu makes it easy to download and get updates for many common libraries. There is a list of all the packages available for Nu here.

If you don’t have Nu installed it takes a few steps but it’s worth it.

  1. Installed Ruby from here
  2. Open a command prompt
  3. Install Nu by running “gem install nu”

That’s it.  You now have Nu installed and can start using it to download packages. For example, lets say you have a project called MyProject and you want to use the DiffPlex and XUnit.Net packages.  Just run the follow commands:

cd MyProject
nu install diffplex
nu install xunitnet

And now both packages are saved to the MyProject\lib directory.
