13 February 2017 Cake, NuGet Robert Muehsig

This blogpost is a follow up to these Cake (C# Make) related blogpost:

Scenario

x

Let’s say we have this project structure. The “Config”, “Result” and “Engine” projects contains a corresponding .nuspec, like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<package >
  <metadata>
    <id>Sloader.Config</id>
    <version>0.1.0</version>
    <title>Sloader.Config</title>
    <authors>Code Inside Team</authors>
    <owners>Code Inside Team</owners>
    <licenseUrl>https://github.com/Code-Inside/Sloader/blob/master/LICENSE</licenseUrl>
    <projectUrl>https://github.com/Code-Inside/Sloader</projectUrl>
    <requireLicenseAcceptance>false</requireLicenseAcceptance>
    <description>Sloader Config</description>
    <releaseNotes>
      ## Version 0.1 ##
      Init
    </releaseNotes>
    <copyright>Copyright 2017</copyright>
    <tags>Sloader</tags>
    <dependencies />
  </metadata>
</package>

Nothing fancy - pretty normal NuGet stuff.

Goal

The goal is to create a NuGet package for each target project with Cake.

build.cake

The usage in Cake is pretty much the same as with the normal nuget.exe pack command The sample only shows the actual cake target - see the older blogposts for a more complete example:

Task("BuildPackages")
    .IsDependentOn("Restore-NuGet-Packages")
	.IsDependentOn("RunTests")
    .Does(() =>
{
    var nuGetPackSettings = new NuGetPackSettings
	{
		OutputDirectory = rootAbsoluteDir + @"\artifacts\",
		IncludeReferencedProjects = true,
		Properties = new Dictionary<string, string>
		{
			{ "Configuration", "Release" }
		}
	};

    MSBuild("./src/Sloader.Config/Sloader.Config.csproj", new MSBuildSettings().SetConfiguration("Release"));
    NuGetPack("./src/Sloader.Config/Sloader.Config.csproj", nuGetPackSettings);
    MSBuild("./src/Sloader.Result/Sloader.Result.csproj", new MSBuildSettings().SetConfiguration("Release"));
    NuGetPack("./src/Sloader.Result/Sloader.Result.csproj", nuGetPackSettings);
    MSBuild("./src/Sloader.Engine/Sloader.Engine.csproj", new MSBuildSettings().SetConfiguration("Release"));
    NuGetPack("./src/Sloader.Engine/Sloader.Engine.csproj", nuGetPackSettings);
});

Easy, right? The most interesting part here is the NuGetPack command. Before we invoke this command we need to make sure that we build the last recent version - to enforce that we just rebuild each project in release mode.

Result

x

The console output should make the flow pretty clear:
