Silverlight Unit Testing NuGet package

Posted on Jun 26, 2012 in and tagged ,
Silverlight Toolkit has several NuGet packages (Core, Input, Theming, etc.). Unfortunately, Unit Testing Framework, which comes as a part of downloadable toolkit version, was not available for the fellow NuGet users. Until now. You can easily install it by typing ‘Install-Package SilverlightToolkit-Testing’ in the Package Manager console. Details here. The package just adds references to Microsoft.Silverlight.Testing.dll and Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.UnitTesting.Silverlight.dll assemblies, so that you don’t have to install toolkit or bloat your VCS with unnecessary binaries.

SharpZipLib for WP7 NuGet package

Posted on Apr 16, 2012 in and tagged ,

I really got used to NuGet in the last year and I have almost completely forgotten what is ‘manually adding library file reference’ (can’t say I regret about that). So I was a bit disappointed when I found out that the well-known SharpZipLib NuGet package can’t be used with WP7 projects. However, there is a nice SL/WP7 port version of this library on codeplex (seems that it is abandoned though – no updates in ~2 years, but it works). It was not available to the fellow NuGetters.. until now. Use

Install-Package SharpZipLib-WP7

There is also a package mirror at BitBucket. Happy zipping!
