Chapter 5: Hosting Your Own NuGet Server > Setting Up a Simple NuGet Package Re...

Setting Up a Simple NuGet Package Repository

The easiest and fastest way of setting up your own NuGet package repository is by setting up a simple network share to act as the physical repository. A folder containing a bunch of NuGet packages (.nupkg) will be treated as a NuGet package source. This is a very cheap way of getting started with NuGet today with almost no effort! No matter what type of NuGet repository you will end up with later, they all have one thing in common: under the hood, simple BLOB-storage (Binary Large Object) is used. A network share is a good starting point, as we will show you later in this chapter, because you can easily extend it with more advanced NuGet server functionality. It all builds on top of a simple package repository. Before spending much effort in a full-fledged NuGet server, we strongly suggest you to get started with this minimal setup and get familiar with the concepts while taking immediate benefit from NuGet's package management.
