Random Coding 3 didn’t happen… yet!

Well, I was diligently playing with Nuget packaging and hoping to make a video where I create a Nuget package that hosts the VSIX that I created in random coding two. However, it seems as though Nuget doesn’t support installing a VSIX, item templates or project templates.

I then sat back and thought “Unpossibleh!!!”

I’m certain I’ve downloaded packages that alter Visual Studio’s menus and options and then it hit me.

I built a Visual Studio Extension.

Nuget is a package manager for libraries.

I didn’t need to place the VSIX in a Nuget package, I simply needed to upload the extensions to the Visual Studio Extensions Gallery. There really is no need for a 2 minute video on uploading the package that was created. So now I’ll be off to thinking about my next random coding Video topic.

Regardless you may now download my project and item templates from the Visual Studio Gallery, but it’s incredibly incomplete as I no longer develop Prism apps.

I probably should delete it, but maybe I’ll get back around to it.
