Visual Studio 2017 and NuGet

Postby crille » April 27th, 2017, 7:20 am


In the latest release of PHP Tools for VS 2017 the release notes say: "Removed Nuget support for PHP projects".

Why was the support for NuGet removed? Do you have plans to implement the support again?

For now, I mainly use VS 2017 for coding and when I need to do something with NuGet, I close everything down and opens the project in VS 2015 just to manage the NuGet part.

Thanks for the post.

Main reason for removing the nuget support in vs2017 was a new requirement for VS2017 plugins to lower the performance impact on startup. As there wasn't any fast way how to make the nugget support work for php projects in VS2017 we had to remove it otherwise you would always see the margin that states that PHP Tools slows down start up.

Anyway you can use bower, npm, composer or other dependency managers which are better suited for php.

May I ask what nuget packages do you use in php project?
