Using NuGet with Powershell 5.0

I had a project requiring the Newtonsoft.Json libraries (NuGetGitHub). I also wanted to play around a bit with OneGet as I hadn’t had a need to yet.

Powershell 5 (5.0.9926.2 as of this writing) makes this easy. Here’s about all that’s needed to get this running and access the entire package repository.

Register-PackageSource -Name NuGet -ProviderName Chocolatey -Location
Get-PackageProvider -Name NuGet -ForceBootstrap
Find-Package -ProviderName NuGet -Name Newtonsoft.Json | Install-Package
