Introducing Solution Deployer Nuget

English SharePoint Solution Deployer, by Matthias Einig has been around from 2012. You can find it in Codeplex - SPSD SharePoint Solution Deployer here. Initially it was targeted for SharePoint 2007 deployment but has been evolved many times and now it support SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013. There is big change from SPSD SharePoint 2007 and SPSD SharePoint 2010/2013 version. The former is using MSBuild task to perform the delivery, while the later is using PowerShell to do the delivery.

English Previously in the part-1 and part-2, we discuss the problem to create installation package in a complex project. We choose to use Nuget package instead of creating MSI, as Nuget implements OPC and very close to developer activities. Moreover it still serve our purpose to create versioned package, where version number of the installation package is embedded in the package itself. In this part, I continue to provide an example to package SharePoint Solution (WSP) into an installation package.

English We continue our discussion to create installation package for our complex project. To remind you, a complex project is a software development project that delivers many component in the BOM (SharePoint WSP, scripts, batch files, etc.) See part-1 here. Defining Package Format As the title suggest, our package format is Nuget. Nuget is the package manager for the Microsoft development platform - so we expect that every developer is familiar with the tool.

English It is rare that in real-life project that we only deliver 1 SharePoint Solution using WSP in the installation package of our solution. Even in very simple case, the installation package must contain at least Release Notes, Installation Guide which is not part of WSP. In more complex case, the installation package must also contains scripts, batch file, reporting services files, windows service installation and many more. Yes, we can create custom MSI and put all of those items together in the installation package as our ancient did.
