Chapter 8: Extending NuGet > Extending NuGet Package Explorer

Extending NuGet Package Explorer

If you often use NuGet Package Explorer, you’re probably doing some repetitive work without even paying too much attention to it. For example, you might need to take a look at the sources of a given assembly inside a NuGet package. We personally like to use ILSpy, a free and open source .NET assembly browser and decompiler, to disassemble binaries and investigate their inner workings. If you want to do this for an assembly inside a NuGet package you opened in NuGet Package Explorer, you would firstneed to extract it, save it to disk (and remember its location), open ILSpy, and open the assembly you just saved. This is too much manual effort, and if you do this a lot, you can easily consume too much valuable time.
