Package Management in TFS15 RC1

If there was a missing feature in TFS 2015, it was the lack of an integrated Package Management solution. Long are these days, the Package Management extension is bundled in TFS 15 RC1!

You just need to install it via your Local Extension Gallery and you are good to go:


You can then create a new feed:

These are the default permissions:


After that you’ll add the feed as usual in Visual Studio:


so you can start pushing something up there!


Delivery of stuff via NuGet package is more and more frequent these days and you had to rely on a third-party tool like ProGet (on-premises) or MyGet (in the cloud). It is great to have it integrated in Team Foundation Server, extending the ALM platform with out-of-the-box features.
