Create the NuGet package

After you have exported your Add-on and edited the .nuspec file, you need to generate a NuGet package out of it. You do that using the pack command of nuget.exe.

PREREQUISITES: If your project does not have a nuget.exe inside folder ~\App_Data\Sitefinity\Export, you must download it from and place it inside the folder.

Perform the following:

  1. Open Command Prompt (cmd.exe).
  2. Navigate to your project’s folder Export.
    This is the project from which you have created the add-on.
    The folder path is ~\App_Data\Sitefinity\Export.
  3. In the command line, execute nuget pack <add-on name>/<add-on name>.nuspec
    For example, if your add-on is named ABC, enter the following:

    generate nuget

RESULT: After the generation, a .nupkg file appears in folder ~\App_Data\Sitefinity\Export. This is the NuGet package that you are going to distribute.
