By Roberto Garcia on Mar 05, 2014
Dear MySQL users,
We are proud to announce that we have made the open source version of our Connector/NET 6.8.3 is available as official MySQL Nuget packages.
What this means for Connector/Net users?
It’s even easier and more straight forward to develop for MySQL from Visual Studio. Installing and upgrading packages couldn’t be easier.
NuGet is the package manager for the Microsoft development platform including .NET. The NuGet client tools provide the ability to produce and consume packages. The NuGet Gallery is the central software package repository populated by various package authors and tied directly to developers ease of installation and development.
For more information see http://nuget.codeplex.com/documentation?title=Getting%20Started
Currently we have 3 nuget packages which contain:
- MySQL Connector/NET Core
- MySQL Connector/NET for Entity Framework 6
- MySQL Connector/NET Web providers
In order to install the nuget package you can use the Package Manager Console as follows:
PM> Install-Package MySql.ConnectorNET.Entity
PM> Install-Package MySql.ConnectorNET.Web
Or via the visual studio console
Note – The core package is automatically included -
MySql.ConnectorNET.Entity and MySql.ConnectorNET.Web are dependent on MySql.ConnectorNET.Data so there is no need to install it (it will be installed automatically).
