Get GdPicture.NET as a (set of) NuGet packages

Post by stunney » Thu Nov 03, 2016 10:49 pm

Get rid of that MSI for an SDK :)

Here's an example to get you going:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<package xmlns="">
        <title>GdPicture.NET 12</title>
        <copyright>© 2016 GdPicture.NET</copyright>
        <file src="Redist\Framework 4.5\GdPicture.NET.12.dll" target="lib\net45\GdPicture.NET.12.dll" />
		<file src="Redist\Framework 4.5\GdPicture.NET.12.xml" target="lib\net45\GdPicture.NET.12.xml" />
        <file src="Redist\Framework 4.6\GdPicture.NET.12.dll" target="lib\net46\GdPicture.NET.12.dll" />
		<file src="Redist\Framework 4.6\GdPicture.NET.12.xml" target="lib\net46\GdPicture.NET.12.xml" />
		<file src="Redist\Framework 4.0\GdPicture.NET.12.dll" target="lib\net40\GdPicture.NET.12.dll" />
		<file src="Redist\Framework 4.0\GdPicture.NET.12.xml" target="lib\net40\GdPicture.NET.12.xml" />
		<file src="Redist\Framework 3.5\GdPicture.NET.12.dll" target="lib\net35\GdPicture.NET.12.dll" />
		<file src="Redist\Framework 3.5\GdPicture.NET.12.xml" target="lib\net35\GdPicture.NET.12.xml" />
		<file src="Redist\Framework 3.0\GdPicture.NET.12.dll" target="lib\net30\GdPicture.NET.12.dll" />
		<file src="Redist\Framework 3.0\GdPicture.NET.12.xml" target="lib\net30\GdPicture.NET.12.xml" />
		<file src="Redist\Framework 2.0\GdPicture.NET.12.dll" target="lib\net20\GdPicture.NET.12.dll" />
		<file src="Redist\Framework 2.0\GdPicture.NET.12.xml" target="lib\net20\GdPicture.NET.12.xml" />

It's the year 2018 could we get a NuGet package for GdPicture.NET by now? It is a bit of a hassle for us as updates come out we have to grab the latest ones and change a bunch of things around. As for above non managed dlls it will still work, please see ... -libraries. This would benefit more than a few people and or companies that use GdPicture.NET

Thank you for your interest and research, for sure we will consider it for the future. So why does GdPictures not have a Nuget Package now?
This is because GdPicture.NET is not intended to be used only in .NET development environments, it is also a COM/ActiveX component that can be used in a very wide variety of IDE and languages. GdPicture.NET also has a more complex structure than the average .NET assembly because it requires architecture-specific external libraries that are not .NET, external resources and system operations to be run. A NuGet package has been designed for .NET assemblies in the first place. Anyway, we will investigate the subject though and, if it is technically possible, we will try to adapt our release process.
Kind regards,

GdPicture Team

I too would like to request nuget distribution for gdpicture and docuvieware. It is extremely difficult to deal with in managing versions of this.

Furthermore CI and CD solutions like Azure devops cannot restore these dependencies if it is not distributed this way. It makes it hard to use as part of an automated build process and becomes a problem child. It would be a shame for such good software such as yours to get a bad reputation due to its distribution method.
