Generating load scripts for all NuGet packages

It is possible to generate load scripts for all registered NuGet packages defined in the paket.dependencies file.

1: 
$ paket generate-load-scripts framework net45

This will create .csx and .fsx scripts under .paket/load/net45/, those files can now be used in your scripts without having to bother with the list and order of all dependencies for given package.

Notes:

  • this command only works after packages have been restored, please call paket restore before using paket generate-load-scripts or paket install if you just changed your paket.dependencies file
  • this command was called generate-include-scripts in V3 and used to put files under paket-files/include-scripts instead of .paket/load

Sample

Consider the following paket.dependencies file:

1: 
2: 
3: 
source https://nuget.org/api/v2

nuget FsLab

Now we run paket install to install the packages.

Then we run paket generate-load-scripts framework net45 to generate include scripts.

In a .fsx script file you can now use

1: 
2: 
3: 
4: 
5: 
#load @".paket/load/net45/fslab.fsx"

// now ready to use FsLab and any of it's dependencies

# Generate load scripts while installing packages

Alternatively, the load scripts can be generated automatically when running the paket install command.

To enable this, add the generate_load_scripts option to the paket.dependencies file:

1: 
2: 
3: 
4: 
generate_load_scripts: true
source https://nuget.org/api/v2
