NuGet Package

Jan 13, 2014 at 9:24 AM
Purely from a user-experience point of view, I think there's value in providing a NuGet package for the client so we can easily add it to projects, pre-compiled and get going quicker and pull down updates easily as well.

Do people think there'd be interest in that, i.e. would it be worth work undertaking? I use the client in probably half of the FIM deployments I work on nowadays and want to get up to speed quickly on them.

Hrm, scrap that, after thinking about this some more, it clearly wouldn't be possible to pre-compile it due to the FIM class dependencies which we couldn't package and would be a versioning nightmare for people using the package, i.e. a client built against version n-1 when they're on n. Oh well :)

It's a nice idea, I had thought about it as well, as I have nuget-packaged my own libraries (with the class definitions for my installation) to reuse them across several projects.
I couldn't find an easy way to solve the need to extend classes, however :)
