NugetPackageClient is the main type for performing package operations:


  • DownloadToFileAsync
  • DownloadToStreamAsync
  • GetAsync
  • GetDependenciesAsync
  • GetLatestAsync
  • GetVersionsAsync
  • ExistsAsync
  • SearchAsync
// Initialize the client type
INugetPackageClient client = new NugetPackageClient();
// Download a package to a file
string fileName = NugetPackageFileName.Create("Newtonsoft.Json", "12.0.3");
string filePath = Path.Combine("C:\Temp", fileName);

await client.DownloadToFileAsync("Newtonsoft.Json", "12.0.3", filePath);

// Download a package to a stream
using(Stream stream = await client.DownloadToStreamAsync("Newtonsoft.Json", "12.0.3"))
    // use stream...
// Get all package versions
IEnumerable<IPackageSearchMetadata> packages = await client.GetAsync("Newtonsoft.Json");

// Get single package version
IPackageSearchMetadata package = await client.GetAsync("Newtonsoft.Json", "12.0.3");

// Get a package's dependencies
var nuGetFramework = NuGetFrameworkFactory.CreateFramework("4.5");

var query = new GetPackageDependenciesRequest("Moq", "4.14.5", nuGetFramework)
    AddRootPackageToResults = false


IList<IPackageSearchMetadata> packages = await client.GetDependenciesAsync(query);

// Get latest version of a package
IPackageSearchMetadata package = await client.GetLatestAsync("Newtonsoft.Json");

// Get versions
IEnumerable<NuGetVersion> versions = await client.GetVersionsAsync("Newtonsoft.Json");
// Check a package exists
bool exists = await client.ExistsAsync("Newtonsoft.Json");

// Check a package version exists
bool exists = await client.ExistsAsync("Newtonsoft.Json", "12.0.3");
// Search for "json" packages (take first 100 records)
var request = new SearchPackagesRequest("json")
    Take = 100

IEnumerable<IPackageSearchMetadata> packages = await client.SearchAsync(request);
